Our program is dedicated to ‘customer discovery’, with potential government partners. As a university team, expect to participate in the webinars we host with startups about how to work with the government and identify opportunities. Teams will have a chance to meet one-on-one with potential government partners who are interested in working towards new solutions. We are also adding components to the program that are unique to what a university team is looking for, like grant resources and introductions to networks within the government dedicated to supporting research.
The time commitment is similar to that required for startups, but we do not expect the full university team to be present in every meeting. We do ask that universities work as a team and designate appropriate participants and team leaders.
