The Texas A&M University School of Engineering Medicine (EnMed) was awarded the VentureWell E-Team CloSure! grant. The grant will assist students in maintaining a positive experience and ensure the continued health, safety and well-being of the innovator community.
The E-Team Grant Program supports student-led science- and engineering-based teams from across the nation in bringing their high-impact innovations out of the lab and into the market. For more than 20 years, VentureWell has provided over $10 million in grants to more than 450 entrepreneurial teams.
Likewise, the program supports student ventures as they embark on the paths they’re likely to take as innovators and entrepreneurs of new technologies. For students continuing their startup ventures after graduation, ASPIRE and partner investor networks are available to assist in launching and scaling their enterprises.
In addition to funding, VentureWell offers a robust Early-Stage Innovator Training Program designed to prepare student teams to discover possible pathways for their ventures as they explore topics including business model development, customer discovery and intellectual property.
