Proof of Concept Program

You need to validate your product before it can go to market or attract investors. But you’re too advanced for research funding, and too early for private capital. So where do you go? The Proof of Concept Program can help. It provides funds for companies and research institutions to demonstrate the commercial potential of natural products and technologies. It covers up to half of the project costs, to a maximum of $250,000.
