How useful/prestigious are these startup incubator things? Like Catapult Incubator

It seems pretty good and one of my friends who did it got into Harvard early and said that it really helped her. Any thoughts on it as well as what are the other players in the space? I know MIT Launch is another

    I'm a Catapult alum, and it's a pretty kickass program. You won't get into the program if your primary goal is to resumé boost. When you apply you should have a genuine interest in learning about entrepreneurship, regardless of skill level/prior knowledge. What YOU get out of it is a chance to explore entrepreneurship, get taught by world-class facilitators, and meet fantastic advisors and people.

    Catapult is launching their first summer program this year, with a slightly different rotational system which allows you to visit three key areas: Silicon Valley, Chicago, and NYC. Summer applications are due within a few days, so get cracking!


    Good luck.
