Ignite Fellow for New Ventures Info Session #1
December 14, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation (OVPRI) at Cornell University has launched the Ignite Postdoc for Ventures program – one of the four signature programs of Ignite Cornell Research Lab to Market gap funding series – in January 2022 to fund and train candidates with entrepreneurial outlooks to start technology ventures based on groundbreaking Cornell invention portfolios. The inaugural cohort comprises five talented Ignite Postdocs pursuing their new journey at Cornell. For this second annual recruitment, the program is expanding to master graduates and being renamed Ignite Fellow for New Ventures.
The program aims to build new solid businesses, grow entrepreneur scientists and engineers, advance technology commercialization, and enrich Cornell’s venture ecosystem by creating high-value startup companies based on the partnerships of an Ignite candidate and faculty inventor.
We are looking for candidates who dream big and take risks, want to become a CEO, CSO, or CTO founder, and want to take their entrepreneurial skills to the next level.
Applications are being accepted through February 28, 2023.
Join one of the virtual info sessions to learn about the program, the goals, the key features, the support provided to the fellows, the application process, and the newly implemented pre-phase to match candidates and faculty-inventors. Register here for session 1 on Wednesday, December 14, 2022.
