Sooner Innovation Fund: Fear No Failure

Start your entrepreneurial journey today and put your wealth generating ideas to the test.

Grants from $500 to $5,000

Applications for Spring 2019 due Jan. 25th

The Sooner Innovation Fund has grants ranging from $500-$5,000 to help OU students transform ideas into reality. We are a self-taught, 10-week proof of concept program that is designed to help OU students test the feasibility and marketability of their ideas, products, and services. We invite technological innovators, product creators, social pioneers, and creative artrepreneurs to explore the possibility of turning their ideas into market disrupting products and services.

We use a three step process. First, you will submit our short application online. Second, you will learn how to build and test your product, service, or technology. Third, you will execute the tests you designed with guidance from the OU Center for Entrepreneurship staff.

Projects that produce a successful proof of concept could be placed into the Sooner Launch Pad Accelerator to launch their new venture. We believe that entrepreneurial innovation makes the world a better place by bringing life-enriching goods and services to consumers, so we ask: what will you create to make the world a better place?

A path for all aspiring entrepreneurs
