How does it work?

Participants will have the opportunity to bring their business idea to life with the help of Harrisburg University faculty, staff, and mentors. Participants will learn the basics of entrepreneurship, refine the idea, and pitch it at a capstone competition showcase. Three winners will be selected by a formal judging committee and awarded prizes. One grand prize winner will be selected to incubate his or her business idea through the Harrisburg University innovation lab.

How do I apply?

Anyone with a business idea is welcome to apply. We are accepting applications through March 1, 2021.
