We’re in the business of helping bright ideas become businesses while nurturing a workforce to support our 21st century economy. As you’ll see in this impact report, we operate in three distinct but interconnected ways: we help commercialize; we convene; and we cultivate the STEM talent pipeline.
OUR COMMERCIALIZATION PROGRAMS are designed to fill the gaps in resources, enabling promising research and technologies to transition into thriving businesses.
