Startup 302

Startup 302 is an early stage funding competition offering prize awards, valuable connections and visibility. All technology-based startups are welcomed to apply for consideration. Those working in bioscience, chemistry, advanced materials, agriculture, and financial & business services are encouraged to participate.


Postponed to 2021

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Startup302 and the inaugural neoFest event have been 

postponed to Spring 2021. In the meantime, the entire Startup302 team remains committed to doing everything within our means to support promising early stage startups. Therefore, we will provide feedback on all completed applications and seek to make connections to potential investors, customers and other members of our growing ecosystem whenever we perceive opportunities to provide value to participating founders. Thank you.
