What information about my company is needed when approaching BIRD?

We need as much information as you can give. A company profile should include the following; people (founders, investors), funding raised, the innovation, status of development, patent situation, product road map, commercialization plans and activities, and website.

Other important information required: Does a partnership currently exist or is one being sought, information about the partner (similar information required about both companies), project idea, road map for development and commercialization, status of negotiations with partner and readiness to participate in a BIRD project.

Submission of a “mock-up” Executive Summary of a BIRD project may be very helpful (template for the Executive Summary can be downloaded from the BIRD website).
