Does MUCI still exist?

In a manner of speaking….

MIIE's Technology Commercialization Fund is a clone of the MUCI Challenge Fund so the program continues within a new, larger framework. All new funding supports MIIE's larger mission.

Early MUCI-funded technologies have begun to pay back into the Challenge Fund. As of October 2012, we have made 13 new MUCI-funded awards from returns on investment.
