REASEARCH - TO - COMMERCIALThe program aims to teach (funded) researchers how to move their technologies from university labs into the commercial world. Unlike a traditional incubator where a successful outcome is an angel or venture- funded start-up, for the R2C program the expected outcomes for teams include additional commercial grants, angel/VC funding and/or patent or technology license to companies. Programs Goals
Give the R2C team an experiential learning opportunity to help determine the commercial readiness of their technology.
Enable the team to develop a clear go/no go decision regarding
commercial viability of the effort.
Should the decision be to move the technology forward to market,
develop a transition plan to do so.
