BTV 101

BTV 101 is a virtual experiential learning program for aspiring students interested in:

(2) launching a technology startup.


The program was created to engage Black students who are STEM majors from across the country.


INTRO to Innovation and Entrepreneurship

BTV FelloWSw

Select student teams who have matriculated successfully through the BTV 101 program will be provided the opportunity to pursue their BTV 101 startup further by becoming BTV Fellows. Tech Ventures Fellows will receive funding to support their customer discovery, product-market-fit, and product-solution-fit research processes (i.e., interviews, MVP development and testing).


BTV SUmmer Accelerator

Select student teams who have shown progress will be accepted into the summer accelerator program. During the summer, teams will receive funding to build and launch the first version of their product. The major goal for each team accepted into the accelerator is to acquire customers, and understand how to drive stickiness.
