Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund

The Intellectual Property Accelerator Fund awards gap funding to Princeton investigators with the goal of fostering and advancing the development of nascent technologies from university labs into commercial development and, ultimately, the global marketplace.

The Fund addresses the development gap between early-stage research and attractive, investment- and venture-grade opportunities. The fund is meant to support proof-of-concept work,  data collection, and/or prototyping that can yield important information or further development that would make a technology more commercially attractive.

Requests for proposals are issued in the late summer with a deadline for submission in early fall. More information on the RFP can be found here.
