What We Do
IDEA is a student-led venture accelerator that fosters the development of entrepreneurs in the Northeastern community through the educational exeperience of developing a business from concept to launch. We at IDEA, strive to provide a holistic experience for our ventures through support, in-kind resources, and opportunities to engage in an experiential learning opportunity.
Bridging the Gap.
IDEA Gap Funding is an educational grant for talented young entrepreneurs to help them build their businesses.
We're industry agnostic.
IDEA ventures tackle big problems in every industry through the guidance and experience of our EIR, coaches, and mentors.
Failure is part of the process.
Our program supports testing and iterating that's necessary for an early-stage concept to develop.
Not just for students.
We welcome all Northeastern founders including undergraduates, Master's students, PhD students, alumni, faculty, and staff.
External Funding Raised
For our ventures it isn’t just about the Gap Fund (a $10,000 non-equity educational grant). From coaching office hours to white board sessions with our Entrepreneur-in-Residence, we offer the in-kind resources for ventures to reach their full potential.
