Supplement your learning with our new video archive page!

Since April 2020, the CTC team has been creating the Sparks Series. These videos are short, educational, practical and conversational.

Now they are also “searchable,” thanks to a new landing page organized by topics.

If you’ve been watching, you might be familiar with the quirky/outdoorsy SBIR guidance in Tips from Todd, the straightforward entrepreneurship advice in Idella’s Ideas, the commercialization and investment know-how in Brian’s Board and the variety of guests in the 30-minute Quick Chats.

While we appreciate how the personalities of Todd Strother, Idella Yamben and Brian Walsh shine in these videos, we wanted to shift the organizational framework of the videos to become more useful, especially important in this on-demand format of learning.

The video page — — shows the most recent videos first so you can catch up but also groups videos by topics like “How do I,” “Innovation funding,” “SBIR agencies,” “Communication tactics” and “CTC programming.”

We hope this change makes our videos even more accessible. They are just one way we work to educate Wisconsin on innovation funding and technology commercialization. We also offer no-cost, one-on-one consulting, live training sessions and multi-faceted programming. Sign up for our newsletter to stay in the loop!
