NWU Pre-Seed Fund.

The Technology Transfer and Innovation Support Office established a pre-seed fund in a co-funding partnership model with the SA SME Fund, a collaboration between government, labour and business. The pre-seed fund provides grants of up to R500 000 for qualifying early-stage technology development projects and complements the Technology Innovation Agency’s Seed Fund programme. As traditional sources of funding for technology transfer were either frozen or reallocated, the Technology Transfer and Innovation Support team concentrate their efforts on building new funding relationships and channels to external funding.

The SA SME Fund invests in funds that support and develop entrepreneurs.
