Hi!

Camila Londono
01:04:19
Luis and Singer, do you have any specific resources that you provide the teams to evaluate/re-evaluate the team, and make the changes needed?
Camila Londono
01:04:30
Singari*, sorry, autocorrect
Carmen Aramanda, Trinity University
01:06:33
@Camila, yes absolutely :) During the accelerator program, they have class assignments to help prod the areas of their venture that they may be ignoring (eg. they're not good at math so they avoid working on their financial projections -- clearly that's an issue b/c they need to set prices correctly and all the other reasons that doesn't work. So we push on those areas but we also provide resources, meet with them to discuss the areas they're getting stuck, and give them feedback on materials turned in
JAIME EDWARDS
01:07:08
@Luis Martinez, could you share an email address to cantact you ?
Camila Londono
01:07:15
Thanks, Carmen!
Shorouq Almallah
01:07:48
Can you talk about the selection process and how you pick the teams
Luis Martínez-Trinity U
01:08:11
@Camila-We also spend a lot of time in 1-on-1 accountability meetings to go through how they work together
Carmen Aramanda, Trinity University
01:08:51
@Jaime his email is lmartin6@trinity.edu
Jennifer Ebinger
01:09:47
@Luis M. That is a terrific idea - that it is modeled off of summer research intensive experiences. Those are paid, they have strong models in place. Just adopt and adapt. Thank you - that is easy.
Camila Londono
01:09:53
Great advice!
Benjamin Nason - (Penn State)
01:11:28
For the panelists: "How are you defining success for your Teams? Is it jobs, $ raised, valuation or something else?"
Luis Martínez-Trinity U
01:11:31
I’m at lmartin6@trinity.edu, feel free to reach out!
Nigel Adams (Uni of Buckingham)
01:11:39
Singari do your women students get the same access to capital as the men ?
Geoffrey Bwireh
01:12:26
How do you interest the parents/guardians to support the students to carry on with their start-ups as opposed to being employed by the already established firms thanks
Anthony Testa - RIT
01:12:33
Would love to hear about best practices in curricula. What is one (or more) element that has significantly up-leveled your accelerator / incubator programs?
Mohammed Bedrouni San Diego California
01:12:39
Anyone interested to work on entrepreneurship and incubator programs in Algeria with funding from the US Department of State? Please contact me mobedrouni@gmail.com. Mohammed Bedrouni, thanks.
Amelia - Emory CEI
01:12:55
I'd be curious to know what stage/s your programs focus on: pre-idea, early ideation, acceleration, growth. And have you found that it's better to focus on one or the other?(We focus on evidence-based entrepreneurship so demand validation before they go into building mode)
JAIME EDWARDS
01:12:58
Trank you Carmen, Luis :)
Jack Wilson
01:13:56
Do any of the US programs coordinate with the NSF I-Corp program as we do?
Benjamin Nason - (Penn State)
01:14:34
For the panelists: "What is the average time from first contact to 'success' for your Teams?"We are seeing that it takes our Teams 2-3 years from first contact to really build serious traction (e.g. funding, major growth in sales, etc.). Is that normal?
Singari Seshadri (Stanford)
01:14:35
+1 on the representation on advisors and speakers
Wendy Bolger (she/her)
01:15:30
LOVE the question, "Do you know someone else who could be on the panel with you?"
Marc Tower, Oklahoma State
01:15:32
@jack Wilson We use I-corps as a feeder to the incubator/accelerator programs. It's not 1-to-1, but as it makes sense.
Carmen Aramanda, Trinity University
01:18:26
@Amerlia, we welcome all stages. If it's idea stage they must have started working on customer validation (or just interviews) and have really fleshed out their lean business model canvas. But we have teams who are just at an idea to teams who are already selling products. We found that because our students are all at the same stage of life/career development, there's still a lot of room to grow.
Mohammed Bedrouni San Diego California
01:18:33
Has the definition of accelerator changed in this debate? How do we go from an incubator to an acceleration in a university setting? What are the requirements?
Carmen Aramanda, Trinity University
01:19:19
I think Luis could share some insights on the question of how to help parents to back their student entrepreneurs in this career path
Carmen Aramanda, Trinity University
01:20:03
^that's for @Geoffery
Elizabeth Koprucki (UChicago)
01:20:41
At UChicago we have an I-Corps program, and a number of the companies in the program go into some of the other programs we run at the Polsky Center.
Camila Londono
01:24:14
Singari, do you have a suite of tools that you pull from for similar profiles? Or is everything created for each individual?
morganslain
01:24:44
Curious what sources of funding programs are finding outside of our own university operating budgets
Singari Seshadri (Stanford)
01:25:41
@Camila - I’m not sure if this is what you are asking but we have a online resource portal where all students in Venture Studio can access a range of resources. The way we customize is through 1:1 advising. Does that address your question?
Anthony Testa - RIT
01:26:26
Honestly, we need another meeting just on this topic of best practices. Also, do we have or should we create a consolidated journal of these practices / learnings?
Camila Londono
01:26:39
It does, yes. We work very similarly than you do, but we’ve been getting feedback that some of our members want more structure rather than being so self-driven
Marc Tower, Oklahoma State
01:26:55
Our entrepreneurship majors tend to be hired more often and into better positions than other business majors ..except accountants...
Shelly Brenckman

01:29:42
Thank you!
Jack Wilson
01:30:49
One parent told his son he should be a dentist -like him. Six years later the son sold his company and it was listed on Nasdaq with over a $500 million market cap.
Victoria Nicholl
01:32:47
I cannot believe that an hour has passed…
Singari Seshadri (Stanford)
01:32:57
One other model to help students financially - the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the school of business recruits MBA students to be case writing fellows following their graduation. Its a flexible job and majority of the fellows are students who are working on their startups on the side so this allows them to get some “funding” while they are getting going.
Victoria Nicholl
01:32:59
How can we be at closing comments already 🤦‍♀️
Singari Seshadri (Stanford)
01:33:09
