    Description:

    VentureSpur is a venture accelerator and seed capital fund dedicated to identifying and developing early-stage, high-growth ventures. Through a 12-week program of acceleration, VentureSpur provides selected participants with seed capital, office space, a team of dedicated, entrepreneurial mentors, education and development opportunities, and a wide range of free and discounted technical and business services. The program culminates on Pitch Day, during which participants will have an opportunity to present their venture to angel investors, venture capitalists and others. VentureSpur is modeled after successful programs such as yCombinator in the Bay Area, TechStars in Boulder, and Tech Wildcatters in Dallas. Program Components include a seed investment of $15,000 plus $5,000 per founder, up to $30,000; additional investment through a convertible note vehicle from both the VentureSpur fund and through other investors; and 3 months of free office space in the VentureSpur facility.
