Marquette University has launched the third round of its Enterprise Seed Fund program.
Funded by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. and administered by the Marquette Office of Research and Innovation, the Enterprise Seed Fund is accepting applications to fund student and faculty entrepreneurship projects. It is open to current students, faculty and staff who have established a legal business entity in Wisconsin. The deadline is Oct. 14.
The goal of the Seed Fund is to accelerate new business development at the Milwaukee university. Six businesses will be selected to receive $50,000 each in seed capital, as well as mentorship and programming sessions held by the Kohler Center for Entrepreneurship.
The Enterprise Seed Fund assists developing companies with market research, assessment of commercialization feasibility, prototyping and service development, proof-of-concept demonstrations, assessment of scalability and business plan development.
