Salt Lake City, Utah – Feb 12, 2018 – The Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) announced the selection of Inertial Sense, LLC as one of the 2018 Technology Commercialization and Innovation Program (TCIP) grant recipients. The grants are designed to help Utah small business and university teams bring their innovative technologies to market.
“A strong entrepreneurial spirit lies at the heart of Utah’s economic success,” said Val Hale, GOED executive director. “These companies are the state’s cream of the crop when it comes to innovative thinking, and we are proud to support them as they grow.”
TCIP helps small businesses secure non-dilutive funding at critical stages of technology development. This year’s grant solicitation was the most competitive in the history of the program, with 130 applicants requesting funds in excess of $15 million out of $3.1 million available. Qualified technologies may receive grants between $75,000 and $200,000, and recipients may also take advantage of mentorship opportunities and entrepreneurial curriculum.
