IgniteU NY is partnering with the Wasabi Ventures Academy Startup Foundations program!

About the Wasabi Ventures Academy

Wasabi Ventures created the Wasabi Ventures Academy to give individuals a firsthand experience in the startup and venture capital world. The Wasabi Ventures Academy is an entrepreneur's guide through the startup universe. Focused around the individual, this revolutionary program leverages the vast network at Wasabi Ventures, as well as fundamental lessons that build successful individuals and startups. The Academy is built around a series of courses; each course offers an incredible wealth of knowledge and is supported by an immense library of resources. The cornerstone of the academy is Startup 101 (Startup Foundations), a self-serve program in which students get an overview of the startup world and learn firsthand from successful entrepreneurs and the founders of Wasabi Ventures. This course is followed by more intensive courses that are offered through a selective admissions process. Successful students may be chosen to become Entrepreneurs-in-Residence, Wasabi Ventures analysts, or WV Portfolio partners, among other roles.

How we are working together

We are excited to announce that IgniteU and Wasabi Ventures have teamed up to offer SF101 to budding entrepreneurs in Upstate and Central New York. SF101 is a self-paced, virtual course that is combined with IgniteU’s personal touch. Participants in this program not only learn the basics of startup life from experienced entrepreneurs, they also become part of a cohort of individuals who share a similar passion for entrepreneurship. In-person meetups will be held regularly for participants to get together at IgniteU to discuss SF101 content and share their experiences. This gives participants the opportunity to learn how to start a company while expanding their network and testing their ideas in the real-world. At the end of the program, entrepreneurs walk away with a new network and a connection to a venture capital firm.

Our next meetup is Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 4:30pm! Click here to RSVP on Eventbrite
