TechPortal: Oversight

Evaluation Experts

An oversight committee comprised of Calit2 faculty division council members, UCI senior administrators, local business leaders and members of business development organizations will evaluate all applications for admission.

The oversight committee will evaluate all applications for admission. Companies will be selected based on their potential for commercialization, extent of interactions with UCI researchers or university technology, and soundness of business plan. The oversight committee will meet at least quarterly to evaluate success of the incubator as a whole and address any tenant concerns.
