One of the biggest challenges in the world of innovation is navigating the complex space that exists between groundbreaking ideas and fully realized products and services. This gap becomes even more pronounced when we consider technologies originating from universities and early-stage startups. To address this issue, numerous institutions have implemented proof of concept programs, startup formation initiatives, and gap fund and accelerator programs (GAP). The innovosource Gap Accelerator Program was established with a firm commitment to leveraging our experience and expertise in these GAP programs, aiming to bridge the divide by fostering collaboration among key players in the innovation community.
Our primary goal is to bring together research institutions, high-tech companies, early-stage investors, and government agencies through direct partnerships and knowledge exchange. We strive to create an environment where insights, tactics, and data can be shared, thereby supporting program improvement and stakeholder development. By advocating for the GAP community, we seek to increase public and private awareness of the capital and support gap for university innovation, while also building consensus around gap funding and accelerator programs as viable solutions.
Our efforts extend to connecting university translational research, proof of concept projects, and startups with sources of capital, talent, and commercialization partnerships. We recognize the importance of facilitating these connections to ensure the successful transition of innovative ideas into tangible products and services. Through this Accelerator Program, we aim to narrow the gap by providing the necessary resources and networking opportunities to foster collaboration and drive progress.

It serves as a community for university gap fund and accelerator programs. Since its establishment in 2018, the Gap Fund and Accelerator Program Community of Action (GAP COA) has become the go-to resource for university, hospital, and research institution leaders seeking to establish or support gap fund and accelerator programs. Drawing on over 17 years of experience and support for over 300 gap fund and accelerator programs, our Mind the Gap initiative has paved the way for the evolution and success of these programs.
