Calling All Inventors: Accelerator Award Submissions

The Accelerator Awards provide Ohio State researchers with an initial infusion of capital to further develop and validate inventions, software, and technologies. Concept development, prototyping, coding, market studies and customer validation efforts are eligible uses for this award.

The Accelerator Awards is a funding program based upon the idea that an initial amount of capital, strategically focused, can make a large difference in advancing a technology along the commercialization pathway. The Accelerator Award is designed to provide funding to further develop and validate promising technologies over a 6- to 12-month timeline.

Available to all Ohio State researchers who have disclosed their inventions to the Technology Commercialization Office, the awards are up to $100,000. Applications for this round of funding are due Monday, March 27.

If you are interested in submitting an application, Shauna Brummet is available to assist you in crafting the application with a focus on the information that the review panel wants to see. Shauna can be reached at
