The Discovery Launchpad program at U of M Technology Commercialization's Venture Center guides inventors through the entrepreneurial wilderness.

Launched in February, the incubator is already working with a dozen startups to commercialize publicly funded research.

Faculty and researchers working with Discovery Launchpad are paired with advisers and coached through different aspects of starting a business. 

Many inventors are full-time faculty. Discovery Launchpad connects them with business partners who have the experience and time to run the business.
