i2E is set to commence the second class of its Tulsa Immersion business accelerator program for early stage businesses, with applications closing on Friday, August 9.
However, program director Shintaro Kaido, a venture advisor for i2E, said last-minute applicants have some wiggle-room if they don’t get their applications until Saturday or Sunday.
i2E is a not-for-profit business incubator in Tulsa.
Kaido explained that three or four startup businesses will be chosen for the 15-week program, through the course of which the entrepreneurs will “evaluate concepts, adjust to customer feedback and capitalize on promising new opportunities” for the end goal of a functional minimum viable product, and $38,000 in non-dilutive capital.
“It’s about understanding the customer and the market, and refining the minimum viable product,” said Kaido.
