Innovation Ecosystems Assessment & Development​

We turn innovation into economic development.
With so many moving parts owned by different types of organizations – municipal, federal, nonprofit, for profit – how do you turn innovation-based university-industry partnerships into powerful engines of economic development? You build trusting relationships while innovating together in a maker space or mentoring a team of students participating in an innovation challenge. Those relationships can become the key to unlocking additional collaborations leveraging federal and local incentives that lead to innovation districts.

Let UI Collab consultants lead the way from a transactional activity to a long-term strategy, or work with us to operationalize and measure the success of individual efforts. Our innovation ecosystems specialties include:

  • innovation and entrepreneurship,
  • economic development,
  • federal incentives,
  • strategy,
  • innovation districts,
  • and venture development.
