Lorentzen Student Hatchery


The Entrepreneurship Centers at Drake are excited to announce The Lorentzen New Venture Hatchery, a unique program aimed at fostering student startups.  This is not your mother's internship; instead, get paid while working on your startup. We will provide guidance and support, access to mentors and experts, office space at Startup City, and more.  Selected teams (two or more people) can earn up to $10,000 per team.

This program is open to all currently enrolled Drake University students, undergraduate and graduate – any major can apply! 

Application Period

Applications will be accepted until 5 p.m. Friday, April 18, 2014. Students who apply and are selected for an interview must be prepared to present their business proposal before a panel prior to being accepted into the program; interviews are scheduled for the week of April 21. For the 2014 Summer session, there are two available spots for individuals or teams of students.

We will have an info session Tuesday, April 8 at 5 p.m., in the Entrepreneurship Center. Pizza and soft drinks included.

Apply online or download the Lorentzen Hatchery Application and submit your idea to us today!

If you have any questions, please contact the Entrepreneurship Center in Aliber Hall or email us.
