Duke alumnus David Cummings sent me some additional wording for Shotput Ventures
Web Entrepreneurs -- Build and launch a company over the summer with Shotput Ventures!
Do you have a brilliant idea for a web services product or business but just need the support it takes to get your company off the ground? Do you have the enthusiasm and tenacity it takes to see your idea through from the initial prototype phase to its successful completion? Atlanta-based Shotput Ventures is an organization dedicated to helping entrepreneurs launch promising start-ups that have the potential to become thriving web services companies. Shotput Ventures provides seed capital during the planning and development stages, in addition to three months of intensive mentoring from several accomplished entrepreneurs. By putting emphasis on identifying and cultivating talented individuals with visionary ideas, Shotput seeks to transform passion into success by helping entrepreneurs launch promising start-ups that have the potential to become thriving web services companies.
Interested entrepreneurs with innovative ideas are encouraged to apply for our summer immersion program, which will run from late May until early August. Applications are due March 27th, and selected teams will undergo a round of interviews before the final eight participant groups are notified on April 17th.
