Igniting High-Impact Ideas

The Corridor invests critical seed funds and catalytic grants to start and scale projects that revolutionize the way we make and use technology, train next-generation STEM professionals and celebrate innovators whose technologies are positively transforming our world.

We are especially interested in community-driven initiatives designed to diversify the talent pipeline and foster an inclusive innovation ecosystem.

In each engagement, we strive to not only invest, but also to serve as a strategic thought partner and convener across our regional network.

The Corridor actively considers new investments in line with its mission and strategic pillars. Letters of inquiry are accepted on a rolling basis using the form below. Corridor staff will follow-up with organizations of interest for additional information and next steps.

High-impact programming is prioritized over event sponsorships. Funding is not available for individuals or for-profit businesses. Please note, awards to new partners do not typically exceed $5,000. Organizations must be located in and primarily serve The Corridor region.
