PSU LaunchBox seeks entrepreneurs

PSU Mont Alto

MONT ALTO — Entrepreneurs will have a chance to test out their ideas at the winter 2023 Idea TestLab, sponsored by the Mont Alto and York LaunchBoxes.

Applications are being accepted now through January 9, 2023, for this free, five-week, virtual accelerator designed to help entrepreneurs determine the viability of their business idea.

No affiliation with Penn State is required for participation, and any Pennsylvania-based entrepreneur is welcome to apply.

The Idea TestLab comprises weekly online classes and one-on-one coaching support and concludes with a final elevator pitch competition where participants pitch to win up to $3,000 in seed funding sponsored by the Mont Alto LaunchBox.

The program starts on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, and classes are held from 6-8 p.m. and run consecutively for the next four Tuesdays, ending in a virtual pitch competition on Friday, March 3, 2023, from 5:30-8 p.m.
