Develop your own startup venture idea or create one from scratch! gALPHA at St. Thomas is a free, four-week venture creation program that helps entrepreneurially minded students and technologists create startup businesses. Participants can bring an existing startup idea/invention, receive a problem from a local company to solve, or create something from scratch.
This is for current St. Thomas students, recent alumni and faculty, and their teammates.
The program runs for four consecutive weeks every January, during St. Thomas’s J-term. Students can participate in gALPHA while taking a class. They’re expected to commit 10 hours each week to the program, including weekly team meetings and large group sessions. There are two events that feature guest speakers and a pitch party to close out the month.
