Getting federal grants
Federal agencies set aside $2.2 billion every year to fund small business development of innovative technologies with commercial promise. Dave Linz, client services director at the UW-Extension's Center for Technology Commercialization, will discuss how companies can compete for these funds.
Dave will be joined by Brian Armstrong, president and co-founder of Wauwatosa-based Metria Innovation Inc. Metria has received more than $1 million of federal grants to further development of its 3D measurement technologies. It is one of many Wisconsin tech businesses that have used federal early seed funding to launch their business, prove out their technology, attract outside capital, and get to market.
