Our Programs

What we do

At Audacity Labs, our student entrepreneurs have the opportunity to engage with local startup incubators and non-profit co-working spaces, and be exposed to a variety of CEOs, university faculty, VCs, founders, and undergraduate faculty across a wide range of industries. And of course, work with each other.

Student cohorts are formed into venture teams of four to six individuals. Each team works together on the development of a start-up, with either a commercial orientation, a social enterprise, or a hybrid of both.
