[This story comes to us from Charles Trillingham, Foster: Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship]
The Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship accepted 9 student-created teams into the 2017 cohort of the Jones + Foster Accelerator (J+FA). These new entrepreneurs will work under the mentorship of top Seattle entrepreneurs and investors for the next 6 months. Those who meet their milestones and complete the accelerator can earn up to $25,000 in follow-on funding.
Congratulations to all the accepted teams! Among these teams, CoMotion is pleased to have supported A-Alpha Bio, EpiForAll, LC-Tourniquet Inc and ShopSight by filing the patents, hosting the Idea to Plan Workshop, introducing them to business mentors, Entrepreneurs-In-Residence (EIRs) and external funding sources or awarding them grants from the CoMotion Innovation Fund. CoMotion is committed to helping the UW innovation community step up to the next level.
