The City of Somerville, Somerville Public Schools, and local tech incubator Canopy City are proud to announce the first round of the BuildCorps Incubator
The City of Somerville, Somerville Public Schools, and local tech incubator Canopy City are proud to announce the first round of the BuildCorps Incubator. In the BuildCorps Incubator, Somerville middle school and high school students will work in groups to identify a problem in their community, propose a solution, turn that solution into a product in the Somerville Fab Lab, and learn how to market that product to customers and pitch to investors. The program will run after school two days a week for 14 weeks both at the Somerville Fab Lab and in Canopy's new incubator space at 14 Tyler St. in Union Square. The program will end in May with each student group pitching their ideas to a group of Boston entrepreneurs and venture capital firms.
The BuildCorps incubator starts in February. Info sessions will be held in the Somerville Fab Lab, located in the basement of the vocational section of the high school, below the gymnasium, on Tuesday January 17th at 6:30pm and .
