Ignite Innovation Acceleration is one of the four Ignite signature programs. Funding is provided in form of grants to labs to advance inventions toward licensing, startup formation or industry partnerships. The program is open to inventions that have been disclosed to CTL from Ithaca, Geneva or Cornell Tech campuses. Two application cycles per year in the spring or fall semester.
Annually 12-16 projects will be awarded, mostly in the funding range up to $50K. A limited number of projects may be invited for a second tranche.
