Twelve teams from the student track and 10 teams from the alumni, faculty and staff track are advancing to the semifinal round of the University of Delaware’s 2018 Hen Hatch startup funding competition.

More than 70 teams from all seven colleges submitted applications for one of the Mid-Atlantic’s largest venture competitions, in which winners are awarded $100,000 in cash and in-kind services.

“These 22 Hen Hatch semifinal teams encompass UD’s engaged and accomplished undergraduate students, graduate students, alumni, faculty and staff,” said Vince DiFelice, assistant professor and venture support lead with UD’s Horn Entrepreneurship. “They represent a diverse background of like-minded and impressive individuals and come from across the state of Delaware. Horn Entrepreneurship is more than happy to guide and advise these motivated entrepreneurs.”

Student teams will pitch their business concepts at the Venture Development Center on Friday, March 16, and alumni, faculty and staff teams on Friday, March 23, to a panel of judges, who will decide which teams compete in the final round on April 25.
