Tech Venture Faculty (TVF) program is a six session technology commercialization series designed to educate faculty in technology commercialization and business fundamentals. The faculty who participate in this program will learn how to evaluate technology for business opportunity and learn how to develop:

  • Value proposition
  • Business model
  • Elevator-pitch
  • Investor presentation

For Engineering Faculty, this Spring we will offer an opportunity to try your hand at developing entrepreneurial skills and pitch your business concept in front of a panel of judges to compete to win time and seed money to develop a start-up.
