Building your company using grants and non-dilutive funding

Obtaining funds through grants and non-dilutive funding sources is a great way to establish and build early stage companies.  You will gain a detailed understanding from experienced entrepreneurs and scientists on how to best obtain and manage non-dilutive funding.


We will cover topics such as:


  • What is the most efficient way to find the right opportunities?
  • What makes a proposal great?
  • How do I present my technology to reviewers?
  • What are common requirements for grant funding?
  • What will I need to track and report?
