SPARK Colorado, founded in 2018, has been assisting CU Anschutz faculty and researchers in the process of transitioning their discoveries into products that will improve health. The program provides funding, industry mentorship, and a curriculum tailored to the needs of participating members.
This fall, the Anschutz Medical Campus was awarded $4 million over the next four years from the National Institutes of Health Research Evaluation and Commercialization Hubs (REACH) grant. With the REACH hub designation, the program will also provide access to key federal agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, in addition to relevant companies and organizations within the industry, and the angel and venture capital investment communities.
Application deadline for the SPARK | REACH program is Monday, Jan 20, 2020. Application details are available at the SPARK | REACH website.
