New Venture Accelerator is a joint effort of two Auburn University groups

We’re on the cusp of another Southeastern Conference football season, so what better way to celebrate those football rivalries than spotlighting entrepreneurial activities at the various universities.

Today, we are showcasing the New Venture Accelerator at Auburn University. As described in this article, it is a business incubator for students and faculty members . . . a place where aspiring entrepreneurs can receive the support and guidance to navigate through starting a business while completing a degree.

The accelerator is jointly managed by the Auburn Research and Technology Foundation (ARTF) and the Harbert College of Business and housed inside The Park’s Research and Innovation Center.

To be accepted into the New Venture Accelerator, teams must apply – describing their business idea, goals, the problem their product or service would solve, and the societal need they’re satisfying. A five-member selection board from the Harbert College of Business and ARTF reviews the applications.
