    Professional Development Opportunities
  • Opportunity From:

    National Institute on Aging

Opportunity Description:

Through this Challenge, the National Institute on Aging (NIA) is seeking researchers and entrepreneurs with a demonstrated need who have innovative ideas for science-driven technologies and products with the potential to increase the diversity of NIA-funded small business research and development. Entrepreneurs from groups underrepresented in health-related sciences are strongly encouraged to apply (PDF, 1.1M).

Challenge finalists will participate in a four-month entrepreneurial bootcamp. To provide maximum flexibility for participants, the bootcamp will be mostly virtual, except for one planned in-person networking event. That activity will take place depending on COVID-19 travel and gathering restrictions; NIH will cover travel costs for participants.
