Summer Sandbox 2020 Application
The HWS Summer Sandbox Idea Accelerator is a program designed to serve as a launching point for student entrepreneurs and startup founders. The program goal, with the assistance of staff, mentors, and subject matter experts, is to impart the fundamental skills for moving any for-profit or non-profit idea from early concept to a sustainable business model. Your own idea is not required; if you do not have an idea, you can be teamed with someone who does.

This program will expose students to the real-world activities needed to refine ideas, identify viable and scalable business models, and launch new for-profit or non-profit startup ventures. It allows student teams to gain a first-hand perspective on entrepreneurship by proactively working on a startup venture while experiencing, first-hand, from the potential successes and failures inherent in the process.

Summer Sandbox will be housed at the Bozzuto Center for Entrepreneurship in downtown Geneva and will consist of weekly instructional programming, guest speakers, and comprehensive incubation services. The accelerator will provide the incubator tenants with a collaborative environment for the rapid advancement of product, service or social ideas.
