Fall 2019 Round Now Open

The Fall 2019 round of the Technology Development Fund is now open! Awards are up to $100,000 for funded projects. Pre-proposals are due to Omar Bakht (omar.bakht@rochester.edu) by 5pm on October 31st.

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. An invention disclosure can be filed here.

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.

Full application and process details can be found on the TDF website.
