LAUNCHPAD WORKS WITH CSU FACULTY, RESEARCHERS AND STAFF WHO HAVE AN INNOVATION THAT MAY BE THE FOUNDATION OF A STARTUP COMPANY.
LAUNCHPAD is a program within CSUV that works with founders from idea through formation and launch of the company. First steps focus on evaluation of intellectual property, technical readiness level, and product-market fit to confirm that the best path to market is as a startup rather than a license to an existing company. Next steps focus on choice of legal entity, team formation, and completing a license to the technology.
Finally, we work with the startup principals to identify resources in the entrepreneurial community that fill gaps and may optimize its potential to succeed. Together we hope to deliver innovation to the market for maximal societal and financial impact, and personal gratification.
