CCLS Team wins a NSF I-Corps grant
Congratulations to the team from CCLS (Manoj Pooleery as PI, Apoorv Agarwal as Entrepreneurial lead) under the business mentorship of Ted Antkowiak from NGI Invent, who has been awarded a NSF I-Corps grant.
The I-Corps grant is a seed grant that feeds into a series of NSF SBIR grants. The main purpose of icorps is to encourage researchers to step out the building and talk to real customers to understand how the research being developed in labs may be commercialized to solve real world challenges.
The award amount is $50,000 and will run from July 2014 through December 2014.
