Info Session

July 7th, 2020
9:30 AM - 10:30 AM

As part of the Jeff Lawrence Innovation Fund, FuzeHub will hold its fourth New York State Commercialization Competition on November 18 & 19, 2020. Companies will compete either in person or virtually to demonstrate the commercialization potential of their technology or product and can win up to $75,000. This competition is intended to help small-to-medium (SME) size manufacturing and technology companies strengthen their “go-to-market” strategies as they move from a new product/production method to the marketplace.

Award funds shall be used to improve a working prototype, which will enable the applicant to pursue additional investment and customers, leading to the commercialization of their product concept. 

Learn more about the program and application platform, the Simple Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE), as well as helpful tips to navigate the application process. This is your opportunity to ask questions and listen to first-hand experiences from competition winners. In addition to the FuzeHub Innovation Fund team, the following guest speakers are scheduled to participate:
