Discovery Launchpad

Deadline - December 31, 2019

The Discovery Launchpad is a startup incubator and program of formal coaching for University of Minnesota researchers interested in forming a startup company to commercialize new technology. The program leverages the broad network of resources across the UMN to improve the success of startup companies and the overall return on investment for research. Other UMN programs, such as MIN-Corps and MN-REACH, provide early stage support for technology development. The Discovery Launchpad complements these programs by helping researchers explore the next step in commercialization— launching a company.
