Technology/Innovation

Who is a Tech Client?

We define a technology/innovation client as a business that is developing or commercializing an innovative product, solution or service by engineering intellectual property (IP). They have a large enough addressable market and a scalable business model. They also strive to learn through coaching and mentoring.  

Who is the Tech Team?

The Tech Team is a set of key Idaho SBDC staff with backgrounds that can specifically help a tech client.  The Idaho SBDC Tech Team helps improve the rate of success of tech clients in launching businesses and becoming profitable through their coaching, common language/processes, and networking to relevant 3rd party resources.  The team provides a unique combination of a focus on technology clients, a statewide presence, broad experience set, extensive network, and acts as a single point facilitator.  Best of all, these capabilities come at no cost to the client.

Our brochure best explains our Tech Team.
