    AWARE Accelerating Women And underRepresented Entrepreneurs


    University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign receives National Science Foundation funding to open opportunities in science and technology entrepreneurship

    CHAMPAIGN -- A National Science Foundation grant will fund a new program (NSF Award #1464507) to encourage and support the participation of more women and those from underrepresented groups in the science and technology entrepreneurial ecosystem at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

    The AWARE (Accelerating Women And underRepresented Entrepreneurs) program is a collaboration among the College of Engineering, the Office of Technology Management, and the EnterpriseWorks incubator at the University of Illinois Research Park.  The $100,000 award will support entrepreneurship training, counseling, and networking.

    “This pilot program has the potential to build our nation’s entrepreneurial pipeline in a meaningful, replicable and sustainable way,” said Dr. Jesus Soriano, a SBIR/STTR Program Director at the NSF. “By opening doors and avenues to participation, women and underrepresented groups will be more likely to join and thrive in the innovation ecosystem in the US.”


    AWARE has been designed to offer resources and an enhanced infrastructure that make the current entrepreneurial ecosystem more accessible to all. Those resources include a dedicated entrepreneur-in-residence familiar with the needs of those from underrepresented groups; small proof-of-concept grants for teams; and targeted mentorship, training, and networking opportunities. In addition,  AWARE will raise the  consciousness of the entrepreneurial ecosystem as it relates to issues of diversity and inclusiveness.

    “The ultimate goal of this program is broad-based, sustainable economic development in the region,” said Andreas Cangellaris, dean of the College of Engineering. “As with most engineering and entrepreneurial programs, there are too few women-led teams. We are developing a model that can be used in central Illinois and elsewhere to train and support a pipeline of women entrepreneurs and entrepreneurs from other underrepresented groups.”

    As part of the NSF’s broadening participation initiatives, AWARE is designed to increase the number and quality of Small Business Innovation Research grant proposals (see below) submitted to the NSF by entrepreneurs from central Illinois. The SBIR program supports domestic small businesses engaged in scientific excellence and technological innovation through the investment of Federal research funds.

    AWARE is being led by principal investigator Jed Taylor, director of operations at the Technology Entrepreneur Center, and co-PI Laura Weisskopf Bleill, associate director of the University of Illinois Research Park and EnterpriseWorks. The first "official" AWARE event, a panel on academic women and entrepreneurship, will take place on Dec. 3. All are welcome. 

    About the National Science Foundation's Small Business Programs

    At the National Science Foundation (NSF), Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) is an approximately $160 million program that catalyzes the commercialization of high-risk technological innovations via research and development grants to small businesses and startups. NSF is an independent federal agency with a budget of about $7 billion that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering.

    THE HDF GROUP

    Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director

    POSITION SPECIFICATION

    The Organization

     

    Location                              Champaign, Illinois

    Revenues                               Approximately $4mm in annual grant (project based) and customer consulting revenue

    Ownership                           Open Source Software Company – Non Profit

    Number of Employees         Approximately 40, more than 25% hold PhDs and one third of the staff are foreign nationals (Europe, Asia, South America).

    Nature of Business And Opportunity

    In 1987, the Graphics Foundations Task Force (GFTF) at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign set out to create an architecture-independent software library and file format to address the need to move large amounts of scientific data among the many different computing platforms in use at the NCSA. Additional goals for the format and library included the ability to store and access large objects efficiently, the ability to store many objects of different types together in one container, the ability to grow the format to accommodate new types of objects and object metadata, and the ability to access the stored data via different programs.  The resulting software and file format were ultimately called Hierarchical Data Format (HDF), and were developed as an open source product and distributed free of charge under a University of Illinois license.

    At the time HDF was being created, NCSA produced a suite of desktop scientific visualization tools for viewing and presenting data in HDF. The popularity of these tools led to wide exposure for HDF, and its use spread throughout the United States and beyond. HDF users quickly realized that it could be used effectively to address many other data management requirements, beyond simply sharing and viewing images.

    By 2004, the HDF group recognized that the best path to ensuring long-term access to HDF data would be to institutionalize the HDF project. The group recognized that its organizational affiliation with NCSA was a significant factor in its success, however, being part of a large academic organization made it difficult to develop the business infrastructure needed to guarantee financial solvency over the long term.  Those running the HDF project at the time decided to spin off from the University and create a company dedicated to a mission of the sustainable development of HDF technologies and the ongoing accessibility of HDF-stored data.  With support and encouragement from the University and NCSA, The HDF Group incorporated as a non-profit corporation in the State of Illinois in December 2004. In March 2005, The HDF Group began providing HDF support and development services. The HDF Group officially began full operations independent of the University in July 2006 as non-profit 501(c)(3) company, and it continues to focus on the aforementioned mission.

    HDF technology is now used globally in almost every corner of the business and scientific communities…from hedge fund management to the collection and management of global climate related data tracked by NASA, to the data gathered in commercial flight tests.  Sony has utilized the technology to create an industry standard for motion picture graphics storage and management, and a handful of bioinformatics projects have shown that HDF has the capability to solve problems of data complexity and size in areas as diverse as DNA sequencing, electron microscopy, brain mapping, and neutron scattering.  The current and potential uses for HDF technology are simply staggering…and it would seem that the sectors with the most commercial potential are financial services, aerospace, and oil and gas exploration.

    Over the years, The HDF Group has built and supported numerous products such as an ODBC driver for HDF, cloud-based management tools, and numerous data visualization tools, among others.  The opportunity to create and potentially commercialize additional HDF tools and industry specific solutions - - while simultaneously achieving the organization’s mission of supporting its community of users well into the future - - is both readily apparent and inspirational.

    The Board of Directors seeks a CEO/Executive Director to replace the founding President who will maintain the mission of the organization while exploring commercial and servicing opportunities that will enable the organization to expand.  The HDF Group requires a curious and creative technology leader who can formulate and execute a strategy that will fund sustainable growth for the company and its technological impact.
