The Lab2Mkt program is Venture Center’s flagship early-stage technology commercialization program. Structured as a three-stage process, the Lab2Mkt program aims to fill the gap between a technology invention/innovation and a full-fledged business plan backed by a successful proof-of-concept.

Stage 1:

Technology & IP due diligence
Market research
Risk identification, Proof-of-concept plan
Preliminary commercialization strategy / business model
Stage 2:

Raising seed funds, Incorporation
Execute proof-of-concept plan
Detailed market due diligence
Engagement with Beta customers
Stage 3:

Detailed business plan
Identify executive & operational team
Raise Series A financing
Venture Center will work with various partners throughout the Lab2Mkt program such as angels, venture capitalists, technology domain experts, IP creation & licensing professionals, government funding agencies, corporations, etc.

At each stage in the program, Venture Center seeks to identify and reduce as many risks – technology, market, team, etc. – as possible. In exchange for taking on these business risks, Venture Center will hold an appropriate equity stake in the spin-off incorporated during the Lab2Mkt program.
