The NIU Foundation Venture Grants Program
NIU Foundation Venture Grants support the development of NIU’s best ideas into viable, market-ready products or technologies.
Under the grants program, faculty submit invention disclosures for review. Five semi-finalists are selected to advance and meet with students from the appropriate colleges. These teams are aligned with mentors and coaches as they train and work on a business plan.
Final presentations are made to the NIU Foundation Grants Committee and two proposals areselected to receive Venture Grant funding.
