Announcement from the Innovation Fund

The Weiss Tech House Innovation Fund wants to thank all student founders for an awesome year of entrepreneurship on campus! Since we want to devote the proper amount of time and effort to every entrepreneur and team that applies, and since the semester is rapidly coming to a close, we will no longer be accepting new applications for funding in the 2016-2017 Academic Year. However, if you’re an entrepreneur on campus and were planning to apply, please still apply! We’d love to meet before the school year ends so we can pick up the conversation next semester.
