Tech Entrepreneurship, Contract Framing, & Innovation Accounting: Winners of 2015 CIV Grants

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.
