Overview:

The Venture Fund is a resource for AAPT members, created to promote the development and marketing of innovative teaching products and services for physics and other sciences.

The Venture Fund focuses on assuring a marketable product and its timely availability to the teaching community.

The Venture Fund is not an alternative to funds from federal agencies such as NSF, which typically do not provide funds to bring products from the research and development stage to the teaching market.

Proceeds from the sales of developed products or services will be allocated as follows:

  • The Venture Fund will be reimbursed for its initial allocations to the project.
  • One-third of the remaining proceeds will be assigned to the AAPT Venture Fund.
  • Another third of the remaining proceeds will be allocated to AAPT general purposes.
  • The last third will be allocated to the person who, or organization which, created the project.
