The Immersion Program operates as a residential model with participating entrepreneurs required to work in i2E's Tulsa offices on Tuesdays and Thursdays. A $2,000 matching investment from the entrepreneurs also is required for participation. The program is directed by i2E Venture Advisor Shintaro Kaido.
