As part of our efforts to encourage and support original academic research in the field of venture, CIV has awarded four academicians with a 2015 Grant.
We received over 60 proposals from leading universities and research institutes from around the globe. The selection process was particularly challenging as we received a large number of outstanding proposals. After careful consideration, we selected four winners to receive $15,000 each for the goal of making a significant contribution to the understanding and shaping of the venture ecosystem.
These Grants together with CIV will provide winners with a global platform to discuss and disseminate their work.
We hereby announce the winners as follows:
Dr. Brett Anitra Gilbert, Rutgers Business School
“Building Culture for Technology Entrepreneurship in Developing Contexts”
Jennifer Kuan, Lyda Bigelow, Kyle Mayer and Robert Wuebker, Stanford University
