If you're here to look for funding for your transformational course or program, you've come to the right place.
We support faculty efforts to strengthen existing programs and build new courses in invention, innovation and technology entrepreneurship.
Our two grant offerings are:
- Course and Program grants – provide up to $50,000 for transformational courses or programs that support the development of market-driven, technology-based inventions and innovations. Read about recent Course and Program grantees.
- Sustainable Vision grants – provide up to $50,000 for transformational educational courses or programs in which breakthrough technologies are created and commercialized for the benefit of people living in poverty in the US and abroad. Read about recent Sustainable Vision grantees.
Are you leading a team of students that is developing a breakthrough technology? Apply to participate in our E-Team Program, which provides funding of up to $75,000 and training to move new technologies to market.
In addition to our grant offerings, we have a faculty training program available, the Lean LaunchPad Educators Program. Led by Silicon Valley entrepreneurs Steve Blank and Jerry Engel, this workshop teaches faculty how to teach the Lean LaunchPad process and Customer Development approach to new venture development.
