This process is not for the fainthearted.

Powered by DreamIt Ventures, Open Canvas is a program that allows select corporations to take teams of internal employees (artists) and their best ideas (canvases) out of their existing corporate culture and place them inside a three-month business accelerator.
There, at one of the top accelerators in the world, surrounded by 10-15 startups founded by some of the best and brightest entrepreneurs, they take an early stage idea and put it to the test. During the three-month DreamIt cycle, teams utilize and implement “lean startup” and “thin wedge” methodologies.

Teams will receive:

Capital

Teams will receive a small amount of capital to help launch a minimal viable product and gain traction.

Mentorship

Teams will receive mentorship and guidance from industry leaders who have created dozens of successful businesses.

Guidance

Dreamit Partners, who combined have built and sold 7 businesses, will mentor & guide the teams.

Work Enviroment

Perhaps most importantly, they are engulfed in a uniquely competitive, yet collaborative atmosphere in which to quickly prove a business idea is viable and cost effective.
