Kauffman Foundation

IAMI is supported by the Kauffman Foundation in an effort to improve the efficiency with which university technologies are advanced to the market.

In the area of advancing innovation, our research suggests that many innovations residing in universities are slow getting to market, and many will never reach the market.

As we look to improve this complex task, we work to research the reasons why the system is not more productive, explore ways to partner with universities, philanthropists, and industry to ensure greater output, and ultimately foster higher levels of innovative entrepreneurship through the commercialization of university-based technologies. The result is more and better options for patients and their families.
