The next round of the University of Rochester’s Technology Development Fund Awards has begun. Awards are up to $100,000 for winning projects. The deadline for pre-proposals is October 15th, 2018.
Submissions should be sent to Omar Bakht at firstname.lastname@example.org. Eligible projects propose the development of university-owned technology to a commercial endpoint. A requirement for the award is that an invention disclosure be filed with UR Ventures
. Remember that Non-Inventor Developers can propose to develop technology that they did not invent
. The hope is that developers (engineers, software developers, etc.) will form lasting collaborations with inventors to help bring UR technologies to the market. If you submit a pre-proposal for this round and you are a non-inventor, please also fill out the Non-Inventor profit sharing agreement.
