Venture Development



Helping new ventures go from “Idea to Series A” or bootstrap to financial sustainability.

Founders of campus STEM and research-driven pre-startup and startup ventures are under pressure to advance technology and business aspects of their new ventures. IALS Venture Development programs serve founding teams aiming to go from an idea to a full-blown, ongoing commercialization effort. We provide faculty and student innovators and their founding teams with good practices, know-how, resources and people to help as they build an early team, explore customers and markets, seek funding, and navigate regulatory and administrative challenges.
