Does your company have intentions of applying, or re-applying, for an Advanced Industries Early-Stage Capital and Retention Grant (ESCR Grant)?
If so — this opportunity is for you and your growing business! The Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) is sponsoring a program with Innosphere Ventures that will help founders with business milestones, strategy, business education specific to companies in Colorado’s high-tech sectors, and ways to improve the competitiveness of your future application to the Advanced Industries ESCR Grant.

This program will:

  • Begin with a cohort model and educational sessions focused on Customers, Capital and Talent.
  • Provide companies with a dedicated Client Success Manager that guides you through achieving business milestones and accessing all of Innosphere’s services such as market research, competitor analysis, introductions, and more.
  • Support companies who are seeking funding though the Advanced Industries ESCR Grant in order to develop and commercialize technologies that will be created or manufactured in Colorado. The program includes workshops focused on the grant process which will be presented by Innosphere and OEDIT staff.

Program Cost:

50% off the normal Innosphere client fee of $5,000 for 6 months, making the discounted rate $2,500 thanks to the OEDIT sponsorship.
