Testimonials

The Mind the Gap initiative has helped the technology transfer community focus on emerging practices in university-affiliated gap funding. The Mind the Gap initiative is the primary, comprehensive source for POC and early stage funding information and resources that the community, including my operations, turns to for understanding and insight.
David Allen, Tech Launch Arizona
As a Fund Manager designing and implementing an organically grown Technology Development Fund, these reports were invaluable in understanding metrics and what other institutions are accomplishing
Michael Rusnak, University of Rochester
Mind the Gap is the premier source for aggregated information regarding university-affiliated gap funding practices. It has been invaluable to us in our ongoing efforts to evaluate creative approaches for structuring seed and early-stage investment collaborations with universities and federal labs. Mind the Gap represents a valuable connection point to universities with leading edge commercialization programs, and as a result, a source of market-leading technology opportunities.
