BBCIE Collaboration Fellowship Application Deadline

January 17, 2016 @ 11:55 pm

The BBCIE Collaboration Fellowship facilitates innovation and entrepreneurial activity at U of T by promoting student and recent alumni access to two or more U of T Campus-Linked Accelerators (CLAs) or programs in the U of T ecosystem.

Depending on the nature of their activities, start-ups will be able to develop more rapidly and effectively when working with two or more CLAs. The collaborating CLAs will enhance access to physical resources and specialized expertise, as well as provide exposure to a broad network of fellow entrepreneurs and industry mentors. Ultimately, the fellowship will result in improved efficiencies in the start-up development process, timely and rich testing environments and collaboration across specializations, in addition to developing processes and understanding between CLAs.

The Fellowship is a maximum of $10,000 for a period of 12 months.

Applicants will be current students and recent alumni (within 3 calendar years of degree completion) who have begun innovation or entrepreneurial activity. At minimum, the project or technology should be at a stage of development where product prototyping could begin within the funding timeline (12 months). Applicants may be individuals or teams.
