Grant Process

Here's an overview of our investment process–from application to funding in one month:

Apply for a grant here by February 26, 2023.

2. PSV will reach out and conduct diligence on your company based on our grant criteria. We will help you finalize a use of funds plan, as well as ask for a short team introduction video and product demo.

3. Mid-November, the PSV team as a whole votes on whether to move the application forward to the Investment Committee.

4. In late November, PSV pitches your company to the Investment Committee which is made up of representatives of the University. They ensure the funding request matches University policies and act as the final check mark.

5. If funding is approved, immediately after the IC meeting funds will be released to your company on a milestone basis. Example: If approved for $5K in funding, only $3K may be given until you achieve specific milestone (i.e. complete MVP or land a paid customer).
