Georgia Tech’s innovators and entrepreneurs still have time before the end of the school year to take advantage of several university-sponsored training opportunities. The Georgia Tech Integrated Program for Startups (GT:IPS®), which helps entrepreneurs develop the skills required to effectively plan and launch a business, will be offering two training sessions: “Business Opportunity” and “Early Stage Funding Opportunities for Startups.” In addition, a training session will be held to help researchers better understand and navigate issues related to export control.
On April 30, 2013, there will be two training sessions for startups:
- GT:IPS Business Opportunity: Identifying and memorializing the business aspects of a startup company is vital. This course will address how to identify your company’s business opportunity and prepare a business plan, from anticipating the potential market to defining exit strategies. April 30, 2013, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m.
- GT:IPS Early-Stage Funding Opportunities for Startups: This course will discuss very early/seed stage funding opportunities for startups. If your company is not quite ready to apply for SBIR or STTR funds, there are a number of other funding sources that can be tapped. The instructors will provide an overview of these sources, discuss eligibility, and provide guidance on allowable uses of the money. April 30, 2013, 5:30 – 6:30 p.m.
On May 16, 2013, a 2-hour training session will be aimed at helping researchers develop a strong technology control plan:
- Export Control & Technology Control Plan: Learn more on the federal laws governing Export Control (EAR /ITAR) as they relate to Georgia Tech and our research programs. This course will provide the knowledge needed to ensure compliance with your Technology Control Plan (TCP) and keep you out of jail. May 16, 2013, 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.
