BUSINESS CASE PITCH – May 2009
Posted on April 30, 2009
$25K is on the table if your MNT business is
ready to take the next step
ACAMP bridges the gap between your product and a
profitable business opportunity.
Microsystems and nanotechnology (MNT) is a growing industry valued in the billions of dollars, but the entrepreneurs and businesses involved in the development of these technologies often encounter difficulties in reaching the right markets and customers. ACAMP has launched an exciting new program designed to help MNT small start-up companies and established firms get access to its specialized equipment and customized business knowledge resources.
ACAMP will hear pitches from potential clients and give up to $25K in business service credit.
Pitch your business case to ACAMP’s Executive Board and if they see merit in your proposal and potential in your prototype, you may be granted up to $25,000 in ACAMP business service credit for your development project.
Each Candidate will have 10 minutes to pitch their business case. (Please no PowerPoint). The Board will engage you in an active discussion and decide if you are ready to receive funding support. Decisions will be announced within two weeks of the meeting. Sessions happen once per business quarter.
