New SPARK Award Program Aims to Stimulate Entrepreneurship

From the Office of Technology Licensing:

The Brandeis Virtual Incubator is excited to launch a brand new funding program,  SPARK Awards, to stimulate entrepreneurship on campus and help bring your ideas and entrepreneurial ambitions to life. The SPARK Program will provide pilot funding for innovative projects that will have a positive social, educational or financial impact in the area of the environment, education, computer science, healthcare, economic solutions, or social needs.

We would like to invite members of the Brandeis Community (faculty, staff and students) to submit an application

We will be awarding $50,000 to be shared among the most promising proposals.

Come get your questions answered at one of our upcoming Info Sessions: 

  • Thursday, February 26, 1:00 p.m-2:00 p.m. (IBS, Chancellor’s Suite)
  • Friday, February 27, 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m.  (Volen, Room 101)

Deadlines: Preliminary Proposals are due by Friday, March 6th

Please note the SPROUT Program for bench research, lab space and/or lab equipment will continue into its 5th year!
