Innovative Online Platforms for Surveys, Relationship Matching, and Gaming
Earlier this spring, the Entrepreneurship and Product Innovation Center (EPIC) of the American University of Armenia (AUA) welcomed the fourth batch of venture startup teams to the EPIC business incubator program.
During the 12-week program, EPIC provides steadfast support to new entrepreneurs to advance their ventures from idea to success. Teams receive mentorship from experienced industry or business professionals, AUA faculty and alumni to strengthen their business concepts with idea validation and business model creation. Having access to EPIC’s numerous resources, including first-class facilities and collaborative spaces, teams successfully advance to launching their ventures into the market.
