What is the Advanced Innovation Program?

Last month, M-WERC announced their latest innovation program, the Advanced Innovation Program, or AIP.  This program is the second phase of WERCBench Labs, and will help startup teams develop the skills that will prepare them to present to investors. Instructors will position the start up teams to be attractive to investors, develop plans for revenue growth, and expand their set of networking capabilities to prepare for presentations to investors, concluding the program.

In this program, M-WERC is fortunate enough to have seven teams from the last round of WERCBench Labs participating, among others. Teams participating in this Advanced Innovation Program are:

  • C-Motive Technologies
  • H2Q Solutions
  • Iconac
  • Improovment
  • STEMhero

CEO of Davidson Associates, Jacquin Davidson will be leading the program along with Dave Zachman of The Commons.  Dave has worked with many of the AIP teams before in M-WERC’s WERCBench Labs program.  Jacquin brings 35 years of professional and entrepreneurial experience to our teams, most recently serving as the Executive Director at Biz Starts.  M-WERC staff, in addition to Jacquin and Dave will help round-out the instruction team for the program.
