We recently told you about the new Delaware Launchpad accelerator program at the Venture Development Center at the University of Delaware’s Horn Program for Entrepreneurship. It was a pretty tight deadline to get into the program, but with only three spots left, the program wants to give local entrepreneurs another chance at applying.

The deadline has been extended to 10 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 10.


“We want to give local startups enough time to apply and so we thought it would be useful to accordingly extend the deadline,” said Mona Parikh, tech community liaison and adjunct professor at Horn Program.

Five teams have already filled the spots. The Horn Program is waiting to cherry pick the lucky three teams that will fill the rest of the spots.

Don’t forget that $5,000 will go to the best startups, to be decided by a panel of judges, at the end of the program.
