ICAT-Accelerator's Inaugural Class of Spring 2015

Each semester, you can apply for a coveted position in the ICAT Accelerator. Join two or three other CofC students as a team to experience what it is like to move an idea from conception to commercialization. With two industry mentors, you may have the opportunity to actively engage in the founding of a globally-scalable, high tech company. At the end of the semester all teams compete for a part of all of $10,000 in the final pitch competition. Only six teams of four students or seven teams of three students will be selected for this experience each semester. 

ICAT-Global Estonia (NGAL)

CofC students who already have a team and a product or service will join student teams from the University of Tartu, Nebraska Wesleyan University, The Citadel and Tallinn Tech to scale their company into a growth phase. You will travel with your teammate(s) and faculty to Estonia and Charleston to work on your customer growth model and momentum. The international name for this program is NGAL - Network Globally, Act Locally. Funding: Harry and Reba Huge Foundation.
