Mookerji Innovation Fund - Igniting New Companies (INC)

The Igniting New Companies program at Kennesaw State University is making more than $100,000 in startup capital available to students and recent alumni with exciting, tech-based business ideas.

This opportunity is possible thanks to tech entrepreneurs Sid and Sophie Mookerji, who recently contributed $120,000 to create the Mookerji Innovation Fund. The Robin and Doug Shore Entrepreneurship and Innovation Center created the INC program to manage the fund, with the goal of:

  • supporting 15 new business ventures with up to $5,000 each in capital,
  • providing consulting and business development services through the Entrepreneurship Center, and
  • awarding three high-potential ventures an additional $20,000

If you believe you’ve got a one-of-a-kind business idea, attend an info session to find out how to apply for the INC program and to learn what support projects will receive and how their progress will be monitored. Once you attend an info session please complete this form and attach your canvas.
