About Startup Quest:
Startup Quest-Pinellas (http://worknet.startupquest.org/) is part of a $12M state-wide grant from the U.S. Dept. of Labor to train people with college degrees to become entrepreneurs and educate them about opportunities to commercialize technologies developed at Florida’s universities and federal laboratories. Through an intensive 10-week training course led by experienced entrepreneurs and startup mentors, participants develop a go-to-market plan for a real technology selected by the mentors and approved by the various tech-transfer offices. The program is open only to those with college degrees who are either unemployed or underemployed, and considering self-employment or working for a startup as a career path.
