NCIIA is announces this year's E-Team Program. This program provides early-stage support and funding of up to $75,000 for collegiate entrepreneurs working on market-based technology inventions.

What's an E-Team?
NCIIA defines an E-Team as a multidisciplinary group of students, faculty, and industry mentors working together to bring a technology-based invention (product or service) to market. The "E" stands for entrepreneurship.

Students and faculty from NCIIA member institutions (US-based colleges and universities) are welcome to apply. Funding is awarded to institutions (not directly to individuals or teams). Submissions are evaluated by external panels of reviewers and will be judged on the following:
• Technology innovation and feasibility
• Business model and commercial potential
• Team composition, commitment, expertise, and institutional support
• Positive social and/or environmental impact
