tTAp Training:

tTAp training focuses on educational opportunities for the C-level executive to build on their background with in-depth cross functional specialty topics focused on areas of interest for growing scientifically founded innovation. Information provided targets some of what a C-level executive might routinely received on a daily basis, if they were a part of a large organization by interacting with their peers.

As part of the tTAp community, these sessions are strongly encouraged for our portfolio, partnership, and even applicant companies, as well as active catalysts. Those interested in attending from the eco-system or public, must register. Please indicate your attendance by e-mailing
