The Fulton Entrepreneurial Professors Program is a competitive fellowship program sponsored by the Fulton Schools and Skysong Innovations. It is designed to provide engineering faculty at the cusp of technology commercialization with the time and resources to learn and live entrepreneurship, and, in so doing, to accelerate the success of their ventures and multiply the impact of their research.
Up to three fellowships will be awarded each year and they will have a two-year duration. The fellowship provides teaching buyout for one course per year, postdoc or research faculty support to maintain ASU research productivity, patent attorney time, travel to an SBIR proposal workshop, and quarterly cohort meetings with investors and commercialization experts. These have an annual value of approximately $100,000 (before indirect costs). All who are eligible are encouraged to apply, and those who do but are not selected for a fellowship may nevertheless receive support for travel to an SBIR proposal workshop.
Pitch day and awardees selected on Friday, January 7, 8 a.m.–noon.
