UD's Pre-Accelerator for Student Ventures

The Summer Founders program is a 12-week program designed for students with early stage startups to work on their ventures and receive a stipend, mentorship and education sessions.

“The program can be thought of as one part startup accelerator which provide startups with mentorship, advice, and resources to help the startups succeed and one part summer job allowing students to work full time over the course of the summer on their business concepts unencumbered from the demands of an academic year.” 

Vince DiFelice, venture support lead and Horn Entrepreneurship faculty member
