University of Southern California

AIM 2013

Accelerating, Incubating, Mentoring

The 12-week summer program is a competitive accelerator, incubator, and mentoring program to launch university startups. Over 100 University of Southern California entrepreneurial teams applied. Six teams were selected to be housed in our incubator facility; these teams have 24/7 access to a collaborative workspace just off-campus. In addition, four teams are participating in the AIM program events and receiving mentoring, but are not based in the facility. USC Marshall and the Lloyd Greif Center for Entrepreneurial Studies provide mentors and resources to the teams to accelerate their ventures. The entrepreneurs will present their ventures on ‘demo day’ to a broad array of angels, VCs and other resources.
