The Office of Technology Commercialization


Georgetown University GAP Fund Letters of Intent (LOI) Workshop


Georgetown’s Gap Fund was established to support promising biomedical technologies, and potentially enable them to cross the “valley of death” phase by advancing the research to its next value inflection point. Beginning March 18, 2022, the Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) will be soliciting Letters of Intent (LOI) for the 2022 Gap Funding cycle.

The workshop will cover how to write a competitive LOI and the Gap Fund 2022 process. The panel of representatives will include past Gap Fund awardees, Gap Fund Advisory Board members as well as seasoned entrepreneurs.  The goal is to help attendees gain insight on how best to add value to their technology and attract funding.
