SCAPE is a flexible program with 4-8 scheduled hours of curriculum and mentoring sessions a week. The rest of the time is on your own to grow your business. If you live in Cortez, Pagosa, Bayfield, Ignacio, Silverton etc, we try and make an accommodating schedule.

The first step in applying for the program is to fill out the submission form below. Submissions are due by midnight on December 31, 2017. We suggest that you have a long look at it – maybe print it out. Think about your answers, and come back to fill it out.

Once you submit your form, you will be contacted to submit a short (3-5 minute) video. The video is your chance to show who you are, talk about your startup, and convey the passion that you have for making your dream a reality. This video is due December 31st as well, so please plan accordingly.

Many of you will be contacted for a face-to-face meeting with members of the selection team. We are contacting companies for more info as soon as we get applications – so apply today for the most review time possible!
