Innovation in the Time of COVID-19: The Grant Process

https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6701565102455451648/

As businesses of all sizes face a myriad of pandemic-posed challenges, Earle Hager offers guidance via the #grantprocess during Temple Health & Bioscience District‘s E-Learning Series #webinar, taking place next Tuesday, August 25 from 12-1 p.m. Bring your questions and challenges to this session you can’t afford to miss! #lifesciences #bioscience #biotech #startups #grants

Innovators looking to develop new ideas during the pandemic face a wide range of challenges. While R&D budgets are being cut, corporate innovation and licensing has slowed, and lab activity has been curtailed.

In these challenging times, startups can find funding but, just as importantly, independent validation of their ideas via the grant process. By leveraging grant-based resources and applications, startups can receive undiluted funding to advance their technology. Join us as Earle Hager shares his extensive knowledge of business development and the grant process for startups and dives into the life cycle planning the grant process allows.

Bring your questions and problems to this discussion, as the answers may be of value to others facing similar challenges.

There’s a new group to know in Austin’s fight against Covid-19

The Neutrino Donut, LLC is a founding member of this group.

Several academic, public-sector and private-sector organizations in Austin and beyond have banded together to fight the current Covid-19 pandemic — and future pandemics.

The Texas Global Health Security Innovation Consortium boasts more than 50 initial members, including the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce, Dell Medical School, Capital City Innovation, DivInc, the Harte Research Institute, Tech Ranch Austin and the Texas Advanced Computing Center. The Austin Technology Incubator, part of the the University of Texas at Austin, organized the consortium.

The consortium, called TEXGHS for short, seeks to cultivate global health security, which it defines as “a state of freedom from the scourge of infectious disease, irrespective of origin or source.”

It “is compiling a database of companies, researchers, and individuals interested in developing their innovative approaches to achieving health security,” according to its website, and aims to be a resource to develop new technologies and adapt existing technologies to fight pandemics.

More member organizations are wanted and TEXGHS is looking for “startup companies interested in receiving support to commercialize solutions at the interface of health security and technology,” according to an announcement.

PandemicTech, an Austin-based organization that serves as a global incubator of ideas to fight infectious diseases, provided $20,000 in seed funding to ATI to start TEXGHS.

The consortium is headed up by Lisa McDonald, director of health care at ATI and a co-founder of PandemicTech.
