About TechAccel Grants
TechAccel Grant Application Deadline - January 16th, 2022 @ 11:59 PM EST
The TechAccel Grants help students jump-start and accelerate their technologically-based ideas that have business or social impact potential. Teams develop their entrepreneurial skills through a seven-part online training platform and one-on-one business mentorship and project funding for product, process, or service development. The program allows participants to define the core purpose of their startup, clarify their vision to their team and potential investors, speak with actual stakeholders to help test the team’s hypotheses, and have the ability to present an overview of the startup venture in a convincing and clear way as part of a succinct pitch presentation (TechAccel Showcase).
This program allows student participants to receive CCR recognition as it is an approved Enriched Educational Opportunities (EEO) program. The grants come out of the Engine Innovation Fund*, which is funded by charitable gifts from alumni and other community donors.
* The Innovation Fund is not an investment fund. Donors are not investing in the companies. Donations made by donors are charitable contributions, which may be tax deductible. Grants are distributed to students through reimbursement of allowed project expenses.
