Grant to Help High-Tech Startups

MEDFORD, Ore. – A new grant is aiming to help high-tech startup companies in Southern Oregon.

Sustainable Valley Technology Group and Rogue Valley Microdevices have announced the 2013 “Inspiration Grant” for researchers and other high-tech startups.

The grant recipient will receive $25,000 and have access to the technology laboratory at Rogue Valley Microdevices in Medford.

The groups say the grant helps companies in two ways – by giving them access to the right equipment, and teaching them how to market their company.
