									   Appendix A - Entrance Criteria and Application Form


BCC policy is to select applicants who will complement BCC’s mission. BCC
staff will also evaluate an applicant’s technology, available resources, and
entrepreneurial experience to select applicants capable of furthering BCC’s

BCC will not sign Non-Disclosure Agreements for the same reasons most
Venture Capital firms and government organizations do not.

Specific Criteria

A successful Applicant for the Technology Acceleration Program must:
   • Meet the definition of a “bio-medical technology” company. Currently
      defined as a company operating in one of five market areas: (1) Medical
      Imaging; (2) Medical Devices; (3) Health Informatics; (4) Medical
      Manufacturing; or (5) Health Systems;
   • Be a for-profit entity as a corporation, limited liability company,
      partnership, or sole proprietorship;
   • Own, or have exclusive access to the Intellectual Property;
   • Demonstrate a need for incubator services; and
   • Demonstrate growth potential

Selection Process

BCC employs a four-stage application process. The first stage is a submission
by the Applicant of the “Application for Admission” (attached to this document).
Applicants who are selected to move to the second stage of the application
process are then invited to submit a technical plan that is ten pages or less and
are invited to meet with staff. An applicant successful at stage two, moves to the
third stage which is a formal business plan, less than thirty pages long. The
business plan is presented to the BCC “Gatekeepers” at stage four who will
accept or reject the applicant into the program.

Successful applicants are selected on a case-by-case basis. General evaluation
criteria include, but are not limited to:

   •   Background, attitude and experience of the applicant(s);
   •   Market need and opportunity;
   •   Financial viability;
   •   Technical feasibility;
   •   Quality of the business plan ;
   •   Current status;
   •   Applicant’s past and projected commitment (financial and time) to the
       venture; and
   •   Business references

Note that established companies are eligible to apply (e.g. a new spin out
opportunity, an intrapreneur).
