Thank you for your interest in LaunchNET's alumni microgrant program. At this time, we are closed to new applications as current received applications are in excess of our available funding. We will post updates if more awards become available.
Applications will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis. Applicants will be contacted for additional information and to setup a venture meeting with LaunchNET to discuss request.
Microgrants will be distributed through the Kent State University Foundation. Award winners will be required to complete a W9 form including business name, entity, address and EIN.
