Traver Creative Technologist Founders Program
This new program integrates problem-solving, customer discovery, business model exploration, technology development (including prototyping), business acceleration, and learning frameworks for creative technologists at RIT. We are currently in "Phase 0: Applications". Students will be invited to submit proposals to the inaugural cohort. MAGIC will convene a review committee comprised of faculty and staff from related fields to assess the applicant pool. Our intent will be to welcome student(s) with strong entrepreneurial ambition, even if they don’t yet have a specific product idea or prototype. The goal is to establish culture by recruiting students with high potential for entrepreneurial success under the mentorship of RIT experts and coaches. This call for participation is modeled after the successful Embark program (https://nextcorps.org/embark), co-managed by NextCorps and the MAGIC Center as well as the established MAGIC Maker program and Simone Student Accelerator.
Join us at our next Information Session: Wednesday, May 18 at 1:00PM
