Startup Industry Opportunities
There is a lack of gender and ethnic diversity of workers using and entering STEM programs and career fields. Using creativity and innovation to address these challenges is critical to meeting this demand of skilled workers.
Responding to a RFS (Request For Startup) will never be the deciding factor in who we fund. As we’ve said many times, the people matter more than the idea. Plus you can’t do a good job on something unless you’re genuinely interested in it. So don’t apply with an idea described in an RFS if there’s some other idea you’d rather work on. You’re more likely to get funded to work on the idea you actually like.
