The application period for the 2013 Spring/Summer session is now closed. All applicants will be contacted shortly regarding their application.
TechArb applications are accepted annually in October and March. TechArb is a six-month program for alumni and student entrepreneurs who are committed to starting a venture. Teams should be able to articulate the value proposition of their venture's product/service succinctly and should be able to identify their target customer archetypes/personas. Most importantly, teams should be highly motivated to build and launch their venture. Like other great incubators around the country, TechArb offers invaluable perks to early-stage startups, such as pairings with seasoned mentors (both regional and from the Bay Area), introductions to angel and venture capital networks, invitations to exclusive seminars, and access to highly useful resources (such as free legal counsel). Teams are required to attend one weekly meeting and regular meetings with assigned and selected mentors. At the end of the six-month session, student teams will be given an opportunity to present their venture (and give product demonstrations) to several dozen alumni/VCs/Angels.
