Supporting and accelerating discovery and development
Entrepreneurial Investing Initiative
Is your organization engaged in the discovery or development of a novel product with the potential to help patients with inflammatory bowel diseases? If so, we want to hear from you!
The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation seeks to accelerate the development of products that aim to improve the quality of life of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. Toward that end, the Foundation has launched the Entrepreneurial Investing Initiative, a new program and dedicated funding mechanism to support product-oriented research and development. Companies and academic investigators can apply. Funding up to $500,000 per project per year will be considered. In addition, funded programs will be offered accelerator resources and advising.
For eligibility, policies, and application instructions, click here. The first step is to submit a Letter of Intent. Applications may be submitted at any time and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. For more information, please refer to the program guidelines document.
Even if your organization is not interested in the Entrepreneurial Investing Initiative at this time, please consider submitting a Letter of Intent as an initial step in engaging with the Foundation. You may be eligible for additional resources, including future funding opportunities. To be added to an email list for updates about this program, email email@example.com.
