Turn your idea into a startup! Apply by May 15 @ 11:59PM

What can you do in 10 days?

So you’ve got an idea? Before building anything in startups, you have to validate that it’s actually something somebody wants. While sounding relatively straightforward, figuring out whether people actually want your thing is the crucible on which most great startups are forged. Come join us for a new imagining of Cornerstone. Lead by Eric Blondeel, a two-time YC alumni, you’ll learn how to validate your idea without fooling yourself and others with bias. Learn about the mistakes of the teams that came before you and maybe earn some prizes along the way too.

Cornerstone is the culmination of the student entrepreneurial process. Validate your startup idea by finding and speaking directly with customers. Gain firsthand knowledge of your target market while joining a network of founders to share knowledge and resources.
