SCAPE’s objective is to support the creation and growth of high growth, job creating companies in Southwest Colorado, by offering an Accelerator Program which provides funding, education and intense mentoring. A successful completion of the SCAPE program should provide these ventures the ability to enter markets and raise capital. The goal is to “graduate” at least 8 companies every year, with each company creating at least 6 jobs in the first two years. [...more...]
The first step in applying for the program is to fill out the submission form. We suggest that you have a long look at it – maybe print it out. Think about your answers, and come back to fill it out.
Prior to the application deadline SCAPE will also host an Applicants Night. This is an opportunity for those looking to apply for the program to learn more, ask questions, and gain valuable feedback from SCAPE on “How to Successfully Apply”.
Once you submit your form, you will be contacted to submit a short (3-5 minute) video. The video is your chance to show who you are, talk about your startup, and convey the passion that you have for making your dream a reality.
Many of you will be contacted for a face-to-face meeting with members of the selection team. Dates are TBD at this point – but we will give you as much notice about this as possible.
