Fellowship Opportunity: Help Bring Novel U of T Technologies to the Marketplace
Deadline: May 31, 2013
Calling all faculty members: nominate a recent entrepreneurial graduate for a one-year HeffernanCommercialization Fellowship.
This Fellowship invites a professor to nominate their chosen candidate, and stay involved through mentoring throughout the prototype development and commercialization phases of the project. The end goal is to enable research technology developed at U of T to become new, successful technology-based companies in Ontario.
The winning Fellow will receive $32,000 over the one-year period of this special fellowship and will become the principal of their newly created company.
Join the ranks of successful past fellowship recipients like U of T Computer Science graduate Anand Agarawala, whose rapid-growth start-up company BumpTop was successfully sold to Google. Or Carlos de Oliveira (CivE MASc 0T6), whose research on earthquake-resistant structural casting led to the founding of Cast ConneX Corp.
