Madworks at Campus, a Madison organization, will provide grants of as much as $4,000 to start-ups in its fall program.

Madworks is
accepting applications for the 10-week program, which starts in late
September and requires a commitment of 20 hours a week, organizers said.
Along with the grant money, participants receive mentoring and training
in customer acquisition and fundraising strategies.

The new class
will be the second for Madworks, which is located in a privately-owned
building on the UW-Madison campus. Madworks had 11 start-ups in its
first class, which ended in August.

“The feedback
we’ve received from the summer cohort has been particularly good,” said
Eric Englund, co-founder of Madworks. “At least three companies are
moving toward their next round of funding, in the range of $500,000.”

The deadline for applications is Sept. 19.
