Save the Date: (T)EEP Course

Innovation Park is hosting (T)EEP, the Technology Entrepreneurial Excellence program, which provides valuable advice to early stage companies, focusing on helping technology companies in our community navigate through vulnerable stages like funding and prototype development. This program is highly interactive and is taught by local business experts, researchers and specialists to help improve the chance of success in the market by providing insight into: startup basics, identifying user need, business models and intellectual property, design challenges, prototype systems, and perfecting your business pitch.


The course will also help prepare participants for the 2021 TechGrant program, where they can compete to win up to $25,000. By the end of the (T)EEP course participants will have 95% of their TechGrant application complete and will have a leg up on the competition. Participation in (T)EEP is not required to compete in the TechGrant program but it is strongly encouraged.


The upcoming (T)EEP course will be March 9-26 with two sessions per week held virtually. Stay tuned for details and information on how to register! If you have any questions about the course, please contact Michael Tentnowski, Director of Entrepreneurship at
