Apply here by September 10 to have your company’s application reviewed
More Than $40,000 in Cash Awarded for Winning Team Ideas
The Fordham Foundry is Fordham University’s hub for innovation and entrepreneurship. The Foundry grew out of Fordham University’s effort to provide entrepreneurial students and alumni with a beyond-the-classroom support structure in starting new business ventures. Recognizing that great business ideas do not emerge only from business schools, the Foundry is open to Fordham students, alumni, parents, and friends of all of Fordham University’s nine schools and colleges, including those in the liberal arts, from whom some of the most creative ideas originate.
This fall, the Fordham Foundry will host the 5th Annual Ram’s Den Competition at the Lincoln Center Campus McNally Amphitheater on October 29, 2022. If your business is ready to take the next funding step, please apply by September 10 to be considered for the Ram’s Den, which awards cash prizes and support services to the winners!
“This signature Foundry initiative provides a tremendous opportunity for companies with traction to receive funding to fuel their businesses,” said Al Bartosic, Fordham Foundry executive director. “We are very much looking forward to another great competition and to providing the guidance necessary to help business ventures affiliated with Fordham rise to the next level.”
Even if you don’t submit a business plan, you can still attend the event on October 29 to take advantage of the opportunity to network with potential investors, mentors and advisers.
The competition is open to all early stage ventures with demonstrated traction (product, sales revenue) and will provide $40,000 in cash and associated services to winning teams selected by a panel of judges who work in venture capital and start up communities.
