The Innovator Program assists these individuals by helping them take their innovations from concept to the first stages of commercialization or by introducing entrepreneurs to the technology commercialization ecosystem.
Innovators in the program will receive access to MCA resources, including:
We are looking for promising individuals who can benefit from MCA support to develop their existing research, prototype, or business plans. Individuals must be looking to develop their innovation into a commercial venture. Individuals who do not have a technology innovation, but are experienced business leaders seeking a pathway into a the world of technology commercialization will also be considered. Individuals with prior experience in research, product development, or business will be preferred. Preference will also be granted to individuals working in health, medical, and biotechnology applications.
Innovators will work alongside MCA Innovation Center Staff to create a progress plan for their innovation or entrepreneurial growth. Active participation by all program participants will enhance the culture of innovation and learning atmosphere of the program - in addition to allowing MCA staff to appropriately allocate MCA resources. To remain in the program, Innovators will meet on a monthly basis with MCA Innovation Center Staff to evaluate progress. Individuals who do not make sufficient progress on their progress plan will not be allowed to remain in the program. We understand that Innovation can be hard to predict, so we will work with Innovators to re-evaluate their plans on a continual basis.
Come and tour the MCA experience for yourself and see what we can do together. Tours are scheduled every 3rd of the month or by appointment.Contact Us
