MacStartups is an 8-week intensive program for student entrepreneurs to launch their ideas globally, nationally, locally or right here on campus. Students receive a $4400 stipend, $500 per project seed funding, coaching, technological resources and a peer community. In addition, students will have access to accomplished mentors who have founded successful ventures, and industry specific mentors. Participants must commit to making a full-time effort during the 8-week program and meet weekly for programming in a virtual collaborative environment with like-minded Mac student innovators. MacStartups is an idea program for Macalester student entrepreneurs who are ready to do the work to forward their vision.
