Mission- Primary focus of the Bluegrass Angels (BGA) Launch Grant Fund will to be to provide financial assistance in the form of small grants to start-up companies in order to help these companies achieve a critical milestone in the development of a technology/product (prototype/beta version) or to achieve an important commercialization/business activity (i.e. IP protection, field testing, market/customer validation, etc.). Such assistance will hopefully increase the quality of investment deal flow for BGA and BGVFIII, as well as other state initiatives/programs such as KEF, CSC, etc.
Typically the BGA Launch Grant panel makes awards in the range of $1-$4K per company, unless an exception is approved by a majority of the panel.
