Pop Up Idea Accelerator

The Pop Up Idea Accelerator is an informal, spontaneous gathering of Entrepreneurs, Innovators, and Service Providers who can help advance your idea (all ideas welcome).

How to register for one of the available appointments
1. Post the idea you'd like to discuss on IdeaBounce®. IdeaBounce® examples and posting information.
2. Email ICE@villanova.edu with the following info: name, phone number, Idea Name, link to your IdeaBounce® post, and preferred timeslot.

You will receive an email confirmation for your session.

Suggested session approach: ideas will be at varying stages and each session will be a bit different

  • First 5 minutes: Quick idea overview ▪ What problem are you solving? How have you validated this challenge with customers? ▪ Expected Market Size? Progress to date? ▪ What motivates you about this idea - why this idea? why you? How do these align?
  • 20 minutes of Q & A - from host and idea team: What have you done to test your ideas and hypotheses (both a value and growth hypotheses) around the proposed solution? ▪ What do you see as the biggest challenges (to adoption) ▪ How will you reach the market / achieve distribution? ▪ What leap(s) of faith (those things they don't do today) are you asking the customer to do? ▪ What substitutes are in the market to achieve the same solution? Are they cheaper? ▪ Etc.
  • 5 minutes of wrap up: host(s) share final thoughts on the model and advice on where to focus
