Proof of Concept Program

Proof of Concept Program

The Mines Proof of Concept fund is made possible by the Mines Foundation and the State of Colorado’s Advanced Industries Fund. These grants are funds to help Mines researchers explore the possible commercialization of their inventions. The fund issues a request for proposals (RFP) in mid-October, with funding decided by the Advisory Board in the winter. The latest RFP is available below, including details of the fund’s operation and requirements. If you have any questions, please contact the Technology Transfer Office.
