Bridging the development gap

The biggest challenge encountered by universities in their efforts to commercialize important new discoveries is the technology development gap: the void that exists between early-stage inventions and the stage innovative technologies must reach in order to be viable and attractive candidates for licensing and commercialization.

Our Accelerator programs combine funding strategies, technical support, and business expertise to help promising innovations make the leap from the lab to the commercial sphere. Each of our accelerator programs focuses on forging new partnerships for the greatest societal impact.
