Launched in the fall of 2014, FAU Tech Runway serves as a core entrepreneurship hub for Florida Atlantic University and as a key resource for the regional technology eco-system.

The annual Launch Competition provides the most promising ventures and talented entrepreneurs the opportunity to join the year-long venture class program.

21 winners will receive entrepreneurship instruction based on the Stanford Lean LaunchPad curriculum, structured team mentoring modeled on the MIT Venture Mentoring Service, no-cost working space at FAU Tech Runway, introductions to potential sources of investment capital, preferred access to local events and up to $105,000 in cash awards.

They also become part of a robust community of fellow entrepreneurs, mentors, investors, instructors, interns and top-level support professionals. Each Venture Class brings together up-and-coming startup and early stage companies, attracting entrepreneurs from across the region, FAU student ventures and FAU faculty-entrepreneurs.

The annual Demo Day recognizes the Venture Class graduates, celebrating their accomplishments during the year-long venture class program.
