Why is Jessica Eting (Dean’s Seed Fund winner & EWMBA 18) smiling? Because she just learned how to get up to $1.5M in startup funding with 0% equity!!
Thanks to our friends @ Intellectual Property & Industry Research Alliances (IPIRA) for bringing the Inclusion in Entrepreneurship Summit to UC Berkeley.
Attendees learned about SBIR/STTR funding and programs available from 11 Federal agencies through presentations and one on one meetings.
There’s a surprising diversity of available funding categories–check out the topic areas for the National Science Foundation here to see if there’s a fit with your startup. (Each agency has its own “topic areas”, so google those as well…) Apps for the next funding round are due in December.
Not ready for prime time? Get started with our next *free* Lean Startup training through NSF I-Corps in October: http://bit.ly/2bTlHyl
