The Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation's Accelerator Program
Powered by the Shaddock Seed Fund
CREATE is a cross-campus, accelerator program that provides mentorship and small amounts of capital to help TCU students get their businesses off the ground. It’s open to all TCU students. Any idea at any stage is welcome.
Our accelerator program includes students from every college on the TCU campus with ideas ranging from advanced technologies to service-based solutions. No idea is too small or too big for our program at the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
CREATE kicks off in the fall semester. Students from each college attend information sessions and workshops together, which culminate in an internal pitch event at each college where a winner is selected to represent their college and compete against other winners from each TCU college for $50,000 in funding.
Through CREATE, you can take advantage of workshops, mentors, advice, grants and legal assistance.
You must be a TCU student to apply.
