AC2T is a sponsor of the newly formed business incubator, Launch Mississippi. Launch Mississippi is a non profit designed to partner with investors, engineers, scientists, consultants, and universities to provide critical mentorship and resources that many startups and existing small businesses need.
Launch Mississippi is able to provide office space in historic downtown Hattiesburg. The space will allow incubator candidates to have a meeting space, collaborative events, technical and business mentorship, and receive support from the startup and business communities. The space will facilitate the Launch Mississippi mentor network who mentor incubator candidates as they develop their products and services.
Incubator applicants who are accepted will go through a ten-week program during which they work intensively on elements needed to take the idea, product, or service to market. The program includes guidance from startup founders, venture capitalists, industry specialist, and executives from well-known Mississippi companies. We are pleased to share that our first applicant has already been accepted for the Spring 2020 semester.
