This Spring, Purdue student entrepreneurs will do startup battle for their share of $15,000 in funding.

The Anvil and The Foundry  have partnered up and are holding an 8 week startup competition called The Boiler that will pit Purdue’s best entrepreneurial engineers and business students against one another for their chance at thousands of dollars in funding and more.

The competition will primarily serve as a mini-accelerator program, providing seed funding, mentorship, office space and exposure to investors for young entrepreneurs to help them get their ideas off the ground. The deadline for applications is February 14th, so if you or anyone you know would be interested in The Boiler, click here for more information.

Purdue student, Anvil Co-Founder and Verge WL Organizer Mike Asem is extremely excited to announce that Angie’s List will be joining The Anvil and The Foundry as an official co-host for the competition.  “Getting support from an awesome company like Angie’s List for The Boiler is something that we’re all really excited about.  It says so much not only about what kind of company Angie’s List is, but the amazing amount of support there is among companies starting up and growing right here in Indiana.”

Also joining Angie’s List, KA+A and Gutwein Law as sponsors for The Boiler is DelMar IT.  For more information on sponsorship opportunities for The Boiler or an invitation to Demo Day, interested parties should contact Mike Asem – mike@theanvil.us
