The latest innovation and commercialization news from The Texas A&M University System.
Funding Seminar for Researchers
On December 4, 2023, Texas A&M Innovation conducted a seminar on “Commercialization Funding Mechanisms" where more than 120 researchers attended, both in person and virtually, to learn about the various funding opportunities to advance research innovations toward commercialization. Discussion topics included internal funding through programs like National Science Foundation’s Innovation Corps (NSF iCorps), Advancing Discovery to Market (ADM) and the Translational Investment Fund (TIF), non-dilutive funding sources, such as SBIR/STTR grants and competitions such as the Texas A&M New Ventures Competition (TNVC), and for-profit dilutive funding and private investments, which is essential for entrepreneurial commercialization. In case you missed it, a recording of the seminar is provided at this link.

A big idea can change everything, but the journey from concept to marketplace can be challenging. Without the necessary resources to gain traction, even the most promising idea can wither on the vine.
The 2024 Texas A&M New Ventures Competition, hosted by Texas A&M Innovation, is open to all Texas-based companies seeking to bring a new or enhanced technology to the marketplace. Participant companies must be technology or science-focused independent ventures in the pre-seed/seed, start-up, or early growth stages.
If you are a start-up or entrepreneurial support organization, please consider applying! Keep an eye out for applications opening in February 2024.
