GRAND RAPIDS — The Michigan Small Business Technology Development Center (MI-SBTDC) has issued a request for proposals for applicants interested in competing for $25 million in Michigan Technology Tri-Corridor funding and is offering some information on the process.

On Jan. 20, the MI-SBTDC, in partnership with the Grand Valley State University and Seidman School of Business’ Outreach Partners will hold a briefing on Tech Tri-Corridor funding and the proposal process.

The Technology Tri-Corridor program, administered by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), seeks to fund the best research and commercialization ventures in life sciences, homeland security and advanced automotive technology.

Funding for the three categories will be based on a competitive, independent peer-review process.

The MEDC has set up this and other training sessions throughout Michigan in January, aimed at providing potential applicants with assistance on how to effectively respond to the RFP request, including information about eligibility, deadlines, additional program details, and how to apply.

The training session will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Loosemore Auditorium at GVSU’s downtown Pew campus. Admission is free.

In addition to its partnership with the MI-SBTDC to conduct the information session, MEDC is also partnering with the GVSU SmartZones, the West Michigan Science and Technology Institute & the MI Alternative and Renewable Energy Center, the Entrepreneurship Center and Family Owned Business Institute, The U.S. Dept. of Commerce and the Van Andel Global Trade Center.
