Innovation Guidance Mentor Fund
Your gift will allow UT students to further their ideas vetted through the Atwood Innovation Plaza. This fund assists entrepreneur’s in producing prototypes and apply for patent applications.
A small portion of this fund is used to pay for quarterly pitch contest prizes, where students and community members prepare and present their presentations regarding their product.
