StartUP FIU is an initiative focused on developing traditional and social entrepreneurship among students, faculty/staff, alumni and the South Florida community. Its Empower Accelerator Program is a 14-week accelerator program, consisting of a robust curriculum, critical mentoring and business advice, and weekly team deliverables. Each week of the program is based on a theme around which lectures and events are scheduled. Successful entrepreneurs from the Miami community provide mentorship to each team. Teams meet with their mentors on a weekly basis to discuss the strategies and skills needed to advance each team’s vision. Those who successfully complete the program are given the opportunity to pitch their startups to potential investors in week 14.


Cohort 4 Pitch Day will be held in the Student Academic Success Center (SASC) building. We suggest finding visitor parking in Lot 3, Parking Garage 1 (Gold) or Parking Garage 2 (Blue). When driving to FIU, it is best to use the SW 107th AVE and SW 16th St entrance.
