Miami Herbert’s residential program for future entrepreneurs.

UStart@MHBS is Miami Herbert’s residential program for future entrepreneurs from underrepresented groups. This six-day program is open to University of Miami students and students from state-wide and national HBCUs (Historical Black Colleges and Universities) and Caribbean schools and universities. The experiential learning opportunities include an introduction to design technologies, exposure to the frontiers of computing and wearables, field visits to small- and medium-sized business incubators, and South Florida cultural content. The Team Pitch project asks students to develop and pitch their own business ideas collaboratively at the end of the week. Students will receive expert guidance from local and regional entrepreneurs, Miami Herbert faculty, and our sponsoring corporate executives, before presenting developed business proposals to a live panel who will select one winner and two runners-up to receive cash prizes.  Details about  applications for the 2023 cohort will be posted soon!
