Kicking off on July 30 and running through October 22, the program will accept five startups into the fold every year and provide a bevy of perks including a $100,000 cash investment, Minneapolis office space, individualize coaching and mentorship from the ECMC Group, and more.

“Partnering with gener8tor provides a unique opportunity to bring awareness, connections and capital to the Twin Cities—an area with a robust history of supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in education,” Josh Slayton, senior vice president of business development, research and innovation for ECMC Group, said in a release.

ECMC Group, ECMC Foundation, and gener8tor will also be sponsoring the OnRamp Education & Workforce Innovation Conference on June 24 at Target Field. The one-day event will feature three tracks ­— conference, startup, and networking — and is open for registration.
