WHAT IS INNEVATOR?
InNEVator is a one-of-a-kind IoT-focused bootcamp hosted through The Innevation Center University of Nevada, Reno – Powered by Switch and sponsored by the University of Nevada, Reno, Breadware Inc. and Watershed Growth Ventures.
Our goal is to add to Reno’s tech community by helping to grow companies within a supportive community. Companies selected to participate in the 8-week bootcamp will work directly with experts to accelerate development of prototyping, creative thinking, commercialization, seed-funding, planning and operations, customer engagement, and other aspects of business. Mentorship and introductions to investors are core elements of the bootcamp.
InNEVator is an 8-week bootcamp focused on growing promising companies in the Internet-of-Things and related Advanced Manufacturing Space. The application period for our Fall 2018 program will
open in August 2018. Do you think you and your team might be a fit? Have questions on our requirements?
InNEVator works with sponsors to help expose brands to new audiences and develop relationships within Reno’s growing business community. Sponsors support the program costs or provide in-kind donations to the participating companies and professionals. Any sponsorship level is welcomed and encouraged.
InNEVator finds strategic partners to elevate the bootcamp experience and drive business forward through smarter software solutions and hardware that meets the needs of our companies, and more.
