FAU Tech Runway is a core entrepreneurship hub that incubates and accelerates early-stage and startup companies. The annual Launch Competition provides the most promising ventures and talented entrepreneurs the opportunity to join the Venture Program. A class of 21 venture companies is selected once per year. Companies may apply to one of three separate tracks: community-based entrepreneurs, FAU undergraduate students, and FAU faculty, staff and graduate students.
We seek exceptional entrepreneurs and startups with high-growth potential and disruptive technology. Winners frequently (though not exclusively) come from the following research areas: neuroscience, marine science and ocean engineering, environmental science, healthy aging, sensing and smart systems, cyber-security, big data analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, educational technologies and drone technologies.
