Faculty, students, and staff seeking investment to commercialize their research are encouraged to apply to the UChicago Innovation Fund Fall 2018 cohort. The Innovation Fund is a multi-million dollar fund that invests in proof-of-concept and early business development work for viable new startups created by faculty and students. The funds have been donated by alumni, and all proceeds from successful exits will be invested back into the Innovation Fund to ensure it is an evergreen, permanent feature of the University’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Previous applicants from across the University, Argonne National Lab, Fermilab, and the Marine Biological Laboratory have competed for proof-of-concept funding by building exciting technologies across a wide range of industries and causes, including healthcare IT, social impact, high powered computing, and education technology. Don’t miss your chance to apply to the Innovation Fund. >>
