The Research Institution GAP Fund and Accelerator Program Summit
Bridging the Tech and Startup Gap
Develop and connect with research institution technology and startup gap fund and accelerator programs. Serving research institutions, corporate innovation teams, and investors
Where We Focus
Over the course of the past 17 years, innovosource has embarked on numerous initiatives and implemented support programs with the primary objective of advancing promising research institution technology and startups. The ultimate goal has been to facilitate the transition of these innovations from the lab setting to university-industry research collaboration, as well as to attract external investments.
We specialize in providing university innovation leaders with valuable insights and cultivating strategic partnerships with industry and investors with a focus on gap fund and accelerator programs.
These translational research and proof of concept programs, startup accelerators, and university venture funds, managed or affiliated with universities, hospitals, and research institutions, offer crucial capital, mentorship, and other forms of commercialization support. Their purpose is to bridge the gap between university research and commercialization while fostering collaborations between university commercialization efforts and corporate research, corporate ventures, and venture capital, angel, family office, and other investment partners
