Entrepreneurial to the core
You’ve fallen in love with an idea that’s been floating around your head. Maybe you’ve talked about it with friends and coworkers, or maybe it’s still in the formulation stage. As you consider the type of life you want to lead, you realize the “normal” path just isn’t for you. You want to put that spark of an idea into action and make it happen by applying for this program!
Turn a good idea into a great idea
Think you can just read a couple of books or learn on the job? Maybe, but with what result? Set yourself up for success! We’ve combined a hands-on, accelerator approach to developing your idea with the richness and rigor of learning that the University of Washington (the second most innovative public university in the world) can offer.
The people you need to know
Along the way, you’ll work with the Foster School’s best entrepreneurship faculty and startup lecturers and connect with the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship‘s resources and competitions. You’ll receive intensive mentoring by a core group of Seattle entrepreneurs and have access to venture capitalists, angel investors, and attorneys. Learn more about the mentors.
Seattle is the place to launch
Big data. AI. Cloud. VR/AR. Space. These hot new industries are taking anchor in Seattle. But the northwest has a history of great innovators and big thinkers (think retail innovation!). Amazon.com, Microsoft, Nordstrom, Starbucks, Costco all launched here and found support from the thriving entrepreneurial community.

Lead and coordinate entrepreneurial teams
Build and grow a new venture
And develop financing strategies and manage profitability for a new venture.
