Sprout Grants Awarded to Seven Groups

Another Brandeis NOW story covers the results of the 2012 Sprout Grant competition. Of 20 applications received, half were software related, half life sciences and physical science-related, so the groups were judged separately. Thirteen groups were asked to return for a second round of interviews, coaching and presentations to outside panels of industry judges.  Seven groups were awarded grants:
