STARTUP FUND FOR UNG STUDENT ENTREPRENEURS
Mike Cottrell College of Business, Center for Entrepreneurship & Innovation
Many UNG students have innovations with near-term potential for commercialization. However, they are caught in the gap between startup and scale, unable to move forward due to lack of funding. The Early Stage Proof-Of-Concept Fund will boost UNG startups by supporting the advancement of student innovations with near-term potential for licensing and commercialization through funding for intellectual property protection, prototyping, app development, market feasibility studies, and other related costs.
