MICA’s Up/Start competition is returning for 2018, as the arts college looks to help the entrepreneurs who are emerging from its programs.
The competition will award a total of $100,000 in seed funding to student startups in the classes of 2017 and 2018 through an ongoing grant from the Philip E. and Carol R. Ratcliffe Foundation.
After a “Pop Up and Pitch” event held at MICA’s campus on February 2, eight finalists were selected for this year’s competition. The entrepreneurs are paired with a mentor from the tech community to help with business plans and pitch prep. Then, a final pitch event will be held on April 4.
