Proof of Concept Fund

Proof-of-Concept Fund

To overcome the funding gap between idea and tangible product, the University of California, Merced has allocated $300,000 to a Proof of Concept (POC) Fund. This fund will be used to invest in startups that have an affiliation to UC Merced and will be used to advance the startup's technology. Investments will be made through an Agreement for Future Equity (SAFE).
