Review on ASU Venture Devils by Olugbenga Ajayi

Asu provides entrepreneurial insight for its students and staff

It is my pleasure to write about Asu venture devils. Asu venture devils is an incubator and accelerator based in Arizona, United States of America backed by Arizona state University (ASU). It is a mentorship hub that emphasize entrepreneurship plus academic. If you have an idea, and you are passionate about it, Asu will turn it to a business and develop you into a founder. Also if you already founded a business and you need innovation and funding, Asu is the best solution for this.

The mentorship program is opened to graduates, undergraduate, postgraduate, staff, alumni and comunity based startups of the Arizona state University. Asu venture provides an equal opportunity for all to access a sort of mentorship that gets startups ready for market and also provide funding and other resources. This includes attachment to already made entrepreneurs for proper mentorship.

With a programme like this, every student and staff can be a founder. Hence too much emphasis is not placed on academic alone but more on the commercialization of the academic research or idea.

Asu has been around since 2016 and has successfully mentored above 130 investments. The programme is well represented on the social media like facebook and twitter.

The programme itself is used to honor J Orin Edison. It is the first 12 organization to win highly reputed Kauffman inclusion challenge.

Another thing that impressed me is the simplicity of the registration process.

  • It has made a good track record for developing ideas into business
