You provide the ideas. We help you deliver on them.
Scientific discoveries have the potential of improving lives and strengthening economies. But developing those breakthroughs into deliverable products and services requires substantial business support.
That’s where we can help. The Purdue Research Foundation works to pair your ideas with the people and money needed to commercialize them. Working with faculty, staff and students on everything from intellectual property protection to market analysis, feasibility, funding, company formation, and real estate we help you commercialize your innovations while advancing Indiana’s economy.
Our services include:
Incubation Services: We support technology-based firms with services and amenities at business incubators around the state, including the Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette, the Ameriplex at the Crossroads Park in Merrillville, Indianapolis and New Albany.
Emerging Innovations Fund: This new initiative offers financial support for startup companies. By providing funding for very early-stage companies, we help speed the process from discovery to delivery.
Microsoft® BizSpark™: Gives you fast, easy access to current, full-featured Microsoft development tools and production licenses of server products; professional technical and expert business support; plus global visibility to new markets.
