ABOUT THE ZINNSTARTER PROGRAM

This year, we will select around 10 student-led startups to distribute $20,000 donated by Ray Zinn, former CEO of Micrel. The ZinnStarter Fellows are selected after a series of applications, interviews, and a trial period.

After becoming a ZinnStarter Fellow, each team is provided with funding (amount determined after teams are assessed), a dedicated mentor, and will be required to attend bi-weekly accelerator meetings. To receive funding, every ZinnStarter Fellow MUST participate in our bi-weekly accelerator meetings.

Students selected for the program are strongly encouraged to enter future business plan competitions to take their startup projects to the next level.
