VOGT Awards

The Vogt Invention and Innovation Awards is an accelerator program focused on early stage manufacturing-based entrepreneurs providing seed funding, education, mentorship, rapid prototyping services, and business coaching in a 10-week program. The Vogt Awards culminate in a “Vogt Demo Day” where Vogt Award Grant distribution winners present their prototype with a 10-minute pitch vying for a larger prize of up to $100K. The Vogt Awards are presented in partnership by the Community Foundation of Louisville and Greater Louisville Inc.’s EnterpriseCorp, www.VogtAwards.com.
