Venture Partners connects our dynamic and dedicated innovation community to university researchers who are commercializing groundbreaking new inventions. 

Our mentor network is powered by some of the most successful entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders from Colorado—and around the world—who contribute their experience and wisdom both in person and virtually to help advance the most promising discoveries.

We pair exceptional serial entrepreneurs and high-impact leaders with our technologists, scientists and innovators to form highly functional teams, focused on accelerating their concept to market. An engagement can last for an hour, a month, a year or through venture funding and exit.
