It’s time again for our annual TechGrant program! TechGrant is a competition in which early-stage companies can compete to win grants of up to $15,000. Applications will be reviewed by our panel of judges who are business leaders in the Tallahassee community and the top five high scoring companies will be invited to participate in our TechGrant Pitch Night on Thursday, October 21, 2021.
Applications are due May 5th by 11:59pm. For more information, please visit our website www.innovation-park.com/techgrant or email Naomi Molina, Director of Marketing & Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is still time to register to attend TechTopics! Our next event is on Tuesday, April 20 from 11-12pm via Zoom. Our speakers are Dr. Yan Li and Dr. Tristan Driscoll from the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering.
Their research targets the human body, specifically regarding treatment of stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and brain tumors. Additionally, their studies can help us understand the critical role cells play in sensing and responding to mechanical forces from their environment resulting in diseases like fibrosis, cardiovascular disease, and degenerative disc disease.
World Health Day is in April so this is a great time to learn and understand more about our bodies to keep us healthy! To register to attend the event, please click here.
