Ignite Outreach Events & Initiatives

Ignite: Cornell Research Lab to Market gap funding series is a program that aims to support the advancement of Cornell innovations and to de-risk the development of technologies toward commercialization. CTL offers various outreach activities to inform prospective applicants about the existing program with information sessions throughout the year and to engage the Ignite recipients and the innovation community about the impact of the translational research supported by the program.

Ignite encourages and supports the advancement of technologies, facilitates the creation of companies based on Cornell technology, and helps in the growth of startups.

One of our newest and most engaging initiatives is the Ignite Showcase, an annual in-person event launched to celebrate the advancement of Cornell innovations resulting from the gap funding program. Faculty innovators, students, and entrepreneurs are invited to learn more and apply to our programs.

CTL will work with you to bring your research to the market for the betterment of society.
