Our program is dedicated to ‘customer discovery’, with potential government partners. As a university team, you can expect to participate in the webinars we host with startups about how to work with the government and identify opportunities. You’ll have a chance to meet one-on-one with potential government partners who are interested in your team and 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.
We do anticipate the time commitment to be the similar to what it is for startups, about 2-3 hours per week October – November, and participation in the Demo Day on December 2. We do not expect the full team to be present in every meeting, but that you work as a team and designate appropriate participants as you see fit.
