The program, themed #InnovationSzn, is a collaborative effort between the Milky Way Tech Hub, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC), and Milwaukee Turners. The Milky Way Tech Hub’s mission is to create inclusive spaces that support underestimated founders, students, community members, and voters while building and strengthening a diverse and innovative startup community.

Nadiyah Johnson, CEO of Jet Constellations and its social impact initiative, the Milky Way Tech Hub, expressed enthusiasm for the program, stating, “Our community is eager for an opportunity like the Spring 2024 Accelerator, where they can enhance their product offerings and test the viability of their ideas.”

The program will provide entrepreneurship and intellectual property curriculum, mentorship from experienced professionals, and funding opportunities ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 for participating startups.
