The Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization at the University of Utah announced a new funding program for early stage technology development and commercialization. The University of Utah Seed Fund will allocate up to $1 million to help university researchers develop promising technologies, enable commercialization and attract additional funding sources. The fund will be focused on technologies at an early stage of development.
“The Seed Fund will help inventors at the university advance their work towards new products and services as well as serve as the foundation for launching new companies in Utah,” said Keith Marmer, executive director and associate vice president of TVC. “It is often a small amount of money that can have the greatest impact on advancing a technology during the earliest stages of development. The Seed Fund will serve as a much-needed bridge to larger funding sources as well as industry and entrepreneurial partnerships.”
The first recipient of seed funding is Djordje Atanackovic, Huntsman Cancer
