"In the midst of the pandemic, when many institutions are canceling innovation programs, we were able to leverage StartupWind’s Virtual Innovation Platform to not only conduct the COVID-19 challenge but also to incubate, develop and mentor promising ideas without missing a beat. We could not realistically replicate what we get from StartupWind, even through a combination of other online tools. The cost would be prohibitively high and the integrated synergies just wouldn’t be there. This is absolutely the best way we have found to optimize the success of our startups and our programs."

"At the University of Alabama, we were faced with a decision of cancelling our student annual business plan competition and our new faculty /staff competition due to students being off-campus as a result of the pandemic. We quickly saw a path forward to use StartupWind for a virtual competition. Within four weeks we pivoted from an on-site program to a virtual competition - for both events. Judges, facilitators, and competitors all were extremely pleased with the new format.
The StartupWind Virtual Competition solution supported the creation of online business plan portals that judges could access to review, on their own time, video presentations as well as the full business plan decks. StartupWind’s software and support team helped us make our flagship event as a resounding success, receiving kudos from all our stakeholders!"

“StartupWind has provided us a unified solution that allowed us to run the Covid-19 business accelerator with companies across the state of Massachusetts. StartupWind has allowed us to run a virtual accelerator program that progresses the local companies with ideation, customer discovery, business model canvas, and prototype stages while providing mentoring to help them get ready to ramp up. Our experience with StartupWind platform was a seamless and smooth process. I would recommend StartupWind for any Business Accelerator program looking to pivot to an online platform in the post-COVID times!"

"I have spent the last 20 years building a job for myself. The StartupWind Global Accelerator has given me the tools, path and guidance to turn my job into a business in just 8 weeks. The mentor aspect of the program was extremely valuable as the mentors varied in disciplines and provided us with instruction and guidance to help bring our product to market. Our one on one mentor sessions that we were paired with were a perfect fit. Additionally, StartupWind courses are filled with great information and lessons. I would highly recommend StartupWind Platform and Accelerator to any small business entrepreneur"

"In 2021, We were recommended StartupWind, initially we thought it was out of our budget. But, after review and realizing everything it can do for us, we went ahead. It was the best decision we’ve ever made! StartupWind brought everything together allowing us to run business plan competitions, idea competitions, several entrepreneurship courses, summer accelerator and mentoring programs seamlessly. Within 6 weeks, we ran our Veteran’s Entrepreneurship Competition & Accelerator, an Entrepreneurship course, a Mentoring program and launched a Big Idea Student Competition. We not only saw the value in such a short time but also have built the foundation for building a powerful innovation engine for our university. StartupWind platform and their support is unmatched and I strongly recommend StartupWind for any University Entrepreneurship program.”
