After wrapping up a very successful year, Nourish International enters its ninth year with some additions to the agenda. At the 2012 Summer Institute, we announced three new and exciting programs for the 2012-13 year.
The first that we are profiling in this blog series titled “Bringing in the New Year with New Programs” is the Venture Fund.
With the Venture Fund, we invite Nourish Chapters to submit business models for a new Venture or for scaling a current successful Venture to our nationwide competition. Funding will be awarded to the winning Chapters to help make their business model a reality.
Nourish will be partnering with Startup Cup, an organization that supports entrepreneurs in creating a successful Business model competition. Startup Cup will assist in designing the program and selecting the winners. Chief Executive Officer Allie Treske and Executive Director Kelly Phoenix will be among the judges, along with other Nourish Board and Community members.
Applications are due by September 21. Students, we are sending out the link by the end of the week, so start brainstorming now!
