Past Commercialization Fellows

Ashley Fernandez

I wanted to be a commercialization fellow because I like the fast-paced entrepreneurial environment, and how important creativity and innovation mindset are in startups. I’m very excited to work with my assigned company and help them grow and thrive by contributing to a successful proposal for federal funding.

Alexa Dalluge

As an SVS Commercialization Fellow, I have the opportunity to connect and collaborate with budding entrepreneurs and offer support to bring their technology to the market.

Julia Davis

After working with 2 startups through the Venture Intern Program, I was eager to work with a startup once again. Through the Commercialization Fellows program, I hope to add lots of value to the startup I am working with and learn more about SBIR and STTR proposals.
