Since the launch of our program, our Hidden Genius Alumni have been busy researching their customer base through the Business Ideation and Validation Phase in our Alumni Venture Seed Fund. From market segmentation to stakeholder updates to entity formation, our entrepreneurs are learning how to take their ideas from concept to market.
