Where We Focus

Over the past 17 years, innovosource has launched initiatives and supported programs that advance promising research institution technology and startups from the lab to corporate collaboration and outside investment.

Our unique focus is on informing research institution leaders and developing strategic industry and investor relationships with gap fund and accelerator programs.

These university-managed or -affiliated translational research, proof of concept, startup, and venture gap fund and accelerator programs provide capital, mentorship, and other commercialization support that is necessary to bring together university innovation and startups with commercialization and investment partners.
