The Alacrity Foundation is in the business of creating the next generation of technology entrepreneurs. With the mandate of turning engineering and business students and recent graduates into entrepreneurs, the Foundation will give grants to the right individuals and teams to develop new technological solutions. Participants accepted into the Entrepreneurship@Alacrity Program will be put through the Alacrity Foundation entrepreneurship training bootcamp.

During that time, participants will spend 9-12 months working on technology commercialization projects for which real world demand has been identified. Project selection will be an interactive process and will involve collaboration between Foundation Executives and Advisors, Industry Partners and participants. Parties will work together to define and set the blueprint to develop technologies for which there is clear and present demand for solutions from Industry.

Once Projects are selected, teams proceed with their bootcamp training under the guidance of Alacrity Foundation and Industry Partner executives. Industry partners provide Project teams with operational support, a vast network of contacts, access to customers and strategic relationships with larger established companies. Entrepreneurship@Alacrity participants gain real world business experience while earning the opportunity to turn their technology commercialization project into an exciting new technology company upon Project completion.
