Can Rockford’s EIGERlab Startup a Startup Institute?
Saw this article in the Chicago Tribune. A new program for training startup employees is launching in Chicago this fall, joining a growing collection of local resources seeking to match talent with growing technology companies.
Startup Institute was founded last year in Boston at TechStars, a startup bootcamp with locations across the country, including Chicago. Co-founder Katie Rae, managing director at TechStars Boston, said officials realized that “most founders and early-stage startups are strapped for time and don’t have time to train people,” especially new employees that lacked prior experience at entrepreneurial ventures.
Is this something that EIGERlab can startup?
