Chapman University Is Launching A Program That Offers Funding, Mentorship To Local Startup Companies
In 1966, the Van Doren brothers started selling shoes in Anaheim. Their small operation boomed and now Vans shoes are a worldwide icon.
The program is an "intensive three-month mentorship-driven investment program for Southern California based startups," accordingto K5launch's website.
Aside from the mentorship, the teams that are picked will get up to $25,000 in equity funding. Then, once they've completed the initial phase, the startups will pitch their ideas to a group of investors and venture capital firms, the site says.
