How it works

Madison Trust supports the innovating work of JMU faculty and staff members while creating a one-of-a -kind experience for investor-judges. 

First, a call goes out to faculty and staff asking them to submit their projects for consideration.

By email, we invite investor-judges to help decide which 10 projects will be presented.

On Friday, February 16, 2018 presenters and investors will gather in person at JMU for the presentation of final projects.

Through their interactions with presenters on that day, investor-judges enhance actual innovations.

Ultimately, investor-judges embrace their intuition and expertise to make day-of funding decisions.
