3 ILT Academy Accelerator Programs Accepting Applications

You'll have to act quickly—the deadline for each is January 31.

ILT Academy, the edtech platform serving underestimated entrepreneurs in underserved communities, is currently accepting applications for three Minnesota-based programs. But you'll have to act quickly—the deadline for each is January 31, 2023.

Each ILT program is a 10-week Lean Startup course that, "coaches, supports, and boosts entrepreneurs and soon-to-be-entrepreneurs on their lean startup journeys." During the programs, founders will learn skills needed to develop and refine their business plan and ideas.

These programs are specifically for founders in three Minnesota regions:

  • Innovate218: Northeast Minnesota (Aitkin, Carlton, Duluth, Grand Portage, Grand Rapids, Milaca, More, Princeton, Two Harbors, all areas in between)
  • Fastland 94: West Central Minnesota (St. Cloud, Alexandria, Fargo-Moorhead, Detroit Lakes, Brainerd, Fergus Falls, all areas in between)
  • NOW Innovators Network: Northwest Minnesota (Bemidji, East Grand Forks, Warroad, Thief River Falls, Park Rapids, all areas in between)

You can learn more about each cohort (including dates, cost, and how to apply) by clicking on the program names above. But remember—applications are due January 31.
