    Get Seeded is an initiative at UConn that was developed to give students the opportunity help move their business ideas forward by providing them with seed funding, mentorship, and next step resources.  Here’s how it works: 
    1. Interested participants can apply here
    2. Participants are then selected to pitch their idea for 5 minutes at one of our 8 pitch nights to judges and members of the audience
    3. Teams can win up to $1,000 in seed funding towards their new business venture or idea
