The Early Stage Commercialization Fund (ESCF) Moves N.S. Post-Secondary Research To Market

The Early Stage Commercialization Fund (ESCF) helps move Nova Scotia university and community college research to market.

If you’re a researcher engaged in life or physical sciences, engineering, computer science or other technology developments with market potential, this opportunity is for you.

Up to $50,000 in funding is available per project.

Funds can be used to assess market potential, develop go-to-market strategies, perform strategic planning, create/update business plans, assist with intellectual property protection strategies, finish proof-of-concept development, build prototypes and leverage of other funds.

The fall deadline is October 26, 2012, and the spring deadline is February 8, 2013.
