About this Program

Startup 302 is a Delaware-based funding competition for technology-enabled startups led by underrepresented founders. Winners will receive prize money, access to mentors, and valuable connections in the startup ecosystem.

We believe innovation thrives when diverse perspectives are fostered and included, and therefore aim to improve access and equity in the First State's innovation ecosystem.

All technology-enabled startups, with at least one founding team member from an underrepresented group are welcomed to apply for consideration. Considering the profile of Delaware’s ecosystem, those working in life sciences, chemistry, advanced materials, agriculture, and financial & business services, sustainable energy, and e-sports industry are especially encouraged to participate.

Previous winners of cash prizes at Startup 302 are not eligible to apply again, with the same company. If founders are now working with a different company, and are meet the other eligibility requirements to apply, we welcome them back.
