MTRAC Training: How to Present a Business Problem

In conjunction with the University of Michigan and MEDC, Michigan Tech will be offering entrepreneurial training during the MTRAC proposal selection process designed to improve the project design and presentation.


Log-In information will be relayed to registrants prior to the session.

MTRAC Participants

This one hour session discusses how researchers can effectively focus on “what problem they solve” in the Letter Of Intent, rather than the specifics of the technological solution.

Other Interested Faculty Are Welcome

This session is open to any faculty interested in learning how to successfully characterize a problem they are attempting to solve in a commercialization funding context.  Many funding agencies involved with commercialization of technology require a different approach in presenting the core problem to be addressed.  This session is designed to help faculty frame their proposal in manner that will more effectively engage commercialization reviewers.

MTRAC Director John Diebel will be hosting a site for the webinar in M&M 724 but applicants and other participants interested in commercialization of their technology are welcome to log in remotely to the WebEx session.
