BOCA RATON, Fla.—Tyco Security Products announced yesterday that it wants to invest in tech startups and other “innovators.” TSP, a division of Tyco International, launched InnovationWorks, a program designed to “help innovators and entrepreneurs bring new and advanced ideas to the marketplace.”

TSP is soliciting applicants who will present their “business ideas and goals” at the InnovationWorks Summit that will take place during ISC West (April 15-17) in Las Vegas.
 
Interested? You need to apply online at http://innovationworks.tycosecurityproducts.com. You’ll have to answer questions about your company/product profile, present funding, channels and unique selling points.

Applications will be reviewed by TSP VP of marketing Anita Santos (Santos is also an SEC accredited investor and owner of Ascend Investments), Tyco VP of corporate development Robert Locke, and other TSP managers.
 
I have an interview request in to Santos. In a prepared statement, she said: “We encourage all those with creative products and ideas to submit an application on the InnovationWorks website.”
