Have you ever been struck by an idea that you know will change the world?

Have you ever wondered what to do with that idea?

In 3 days, go from that idea on a napkin...

to a formed team,

some initial customer research,

and a rough prototype.

All in one awesome weekend.

#IncU is a 3-day incubator hosted by Big Blue Starters in cooperation with several other organizations across UK and the Lexington startup community to help undergraduate and graduate students learn how to start a new venture by actually doing it.  It is designed to find the best and most tallented students at UK and bring them all together for the purpose of starting awesome companies and organizations - whether that is a for-profit or non-profit venture.

Here's the Deal...

  • We're looking for the top 40-50 undergrad and grad students at UK based solely on their skills and abilities, not GPA, not the brilliance of their idea, and not based on popularity.  #IncU is about creating teams and startups that have the highest chance to succeed - and that takes tallented people.
  • You DO NOT have to have an idea to apply.  Acceptance is based on skill and interest rather than the feasibility of your idea.  If you do have an idea, let us hear about it!
  • If you're not sure if you're who we're looking for, STILL APPLY!  There's no way to know until you try!

Only 40-50 of the most tallented and hard-working students from across the University of Kentucky will make it into #IncU - so apply now, and tell us why you think you should be a part of #IncU!  The weekend will be a LOT of hard work, but it will be absolutely worth it, and you'll get tons of free food and get to hang out with great people like yourself.  We're giving you everything you need to learn how to go from idea to actionable steps and help you take the next steps with this weekend incubator, so take advantage of it while you still can! Apply now!

#IncU will be held March 2-4, 2012 at Awesome Inc.  You will be informed whether you were accepted or not at the latest by midnight Feb 26th.  You will need to be at Awesome Inc for the majority of the event.
