University of Delaware Horn Entrepreneurship’s Summer Founders program has developed to the point where we’ve already heard of many of the startups participating in its fourth cohort.
The three-month incubator that ends with a demo day where participants present their startups to members of the local business community supporting economic development, and teams receive up to $10,000 to devote to working on their startup all summer long.
