Phase I
SMTEC’s quick-start seminar series lasts approximately six weeks and leads a startup company through the basics of preparing their investable story. More than just a “how-to” on making a presentation, the program focuses on core business model development from which an effective story can be put together.

Phase II
SMTEC’s accelerator launch will be an ongoing eight to twelve week program and is based on identifying startup companies that have the potential for high growth, or the ability to create jobs and wealth, thereby providing an economic impact for the community.
