Launched by Real Industry in 2017, the Real Startup program puts students first and we take zero equity for university students to participate. The program prepares students to enter industry, refine interpersonal, professional, and business skills, commercialize their ideas, and expand their professional networks in a real-world setting. All active university students are welcome to apply. (Teams may have recent alumni.)
The program fee is $1,000 per team member. This includes 10 days (2 weeks) of hands-on mentorship, access and onsite visits to 10 industry leading companies in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, and support from Real Industry’s 300 industry mentors. In addition, most expenses during daily programming (coffee, lunch etc.) will be covered as well as three networking dinners. Travel and lodging is not included, however, Real Industry maybe be able to offer discounted or group rates on lodging in the area. If you are in need of financial assistance, please reach out to your university or college about available scholarship and funding opportunities.
