Funding Your Innovation

These funding resources each have a unique focus and capacity to provide support across the entire spectrum, supporting early to late stages of innovation.

Among these include funding sources that support the collaboration with Student Groups, establishing synergies between the UCSD School of Medicine, Rady School of Management and the Jacob's School of Engineering.  In this manner, the engineering and business academic curricula are able to leverage the groundbreaking ideas arising from the clinical experiences and research throughout UCSD Health Sciences; while health care inventors and entrepreneurs benefit from their innovations being applied to courses that support early stage prototyping and product development as well as perform market research and validation, feasibility studies, develop a business case and then a business plan and a go-to-market strategy.

Other funding mechanisms support advanced stages of product development, pilot testing, and a variety of resources that will help you establish and grow a business.  If you are early in the game, start with the resources listed below:
