Every year, the VentureWell E-Teams Grant Program awards over $650,000 in grant funding to early-stage science and tech student startups who are on the path to launching innovations with a social, health or environmental impact.VentureWell logo

The E-Teams Program supports student ventures as they embark down the path they’re likely to take as an innovator and entrepreneur. If teams are able to continue with their startup after they graduate, ASPIRE and our investor network are available to help teams prepare to build their company.
