Technology Commercialization Initiative

The Technology Commercialization Initiative (TCI) provides funding for short-term projects at early-stage companies that address key issues in product technology development.

The TCI aims to establish and grow a leading industry presence in Pennsylvania focused initially on target market segments growing around digital multimedia, digital networking, and robotic applications. The TCI represents an endeavor by IW, the members of its Technology Commercialization Advisory Board (TCAB), regional universities, and the Commonwealth to identify product technology challenges within these target market segments and to create designs and solutions that reach beyond the current generation of available products and services.
