We innovate to bring jobs, health, and creativity to Indiana and the world. Innovate Indiana initiatives take IU discoveries to the economic markets, hospitals, schools, communities, and environmental landscapes where they’re critically needed. We provide resources and expert council to help researchers transform promising ideas into new companies, technologies, and cures.
Building infrastructure and introducing collaborators: IU researchers get assistance with finding seed funding, lab and office space, technology support, and creative and intellectual resources—we connect faculty and postdoctoral researchers from different areas whose research interests overlap.

Launching start-ups and securing patents: The IU Research and Technology Corporation (IURTC) helps launch promising start-ups by securing funding and patents, by helping IU faculty see the commercial potential in their research, and by bringing laboratory discoveries and new technologies to the marketplace.
