Thinc. Starter Grants

More info

Thinc. is a university-wide initiative designed to encourage UGA students, faculty and staff to see the world of opportunities both local and global, and to start something in response.  That “something” might be a new for-profit company or a not-for-profit social venture. It might change something in your own neighborhood or community, or it might change the world.

Thinc. fosters and promotes the spirit of entrepreneurship, broadly defined.

See a problem – solve it.

See an opportunity – seize it.

Free your potential – start something.
