Need funding to get your entrepreneurial idea off the ground? Explore these campus funding opportunities:
The Engineering Excellence Fund is an entirely student-managed committee that distributes funding for a variety of projects in the College of Engineering and Applied Science including senior projects, lab upgrades, building renovations, class development, team projects and more. The committee awards more than $1.5 million annually to students, educators and programs through fixed commitments and proposal cycles.
Get Seed Funding is a micro-funding opportunity for CU Boulder undergrads and graduate students that provides up to $500 in funding for entrepreneurial ideas in the making. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and reviewed by the campus Innovation Action Team.
The DCVF focuses on investments in the "funding gap" providing financial support that early-stage companies often require to develop and test new products and technologies. The fund, managed by a cross-disciplinary team of CU Boulder graduate students, aims to both provide support to the CU entrepreneurial ecosystem while also exposing those students who manage the fund to an applied venture capital investment experience as they source, analyze and invest in local ventures.
