You have an incredible idea to improve human health.
We want to give you up to $30,000 to do it.

Yale University, the University of Connecticut, and Quinnipiac University have joined forces with Connecticut Innovations and the Bioscience Innovation Fund to help you commercialize your biomedical technology innovation (medical devices, diagnostics and health information technology).

Our $1 million, two-year initiative provides up to $30,000 per project of much-needed gap funding to seedling companies or faculty and student groups associated with any Connecticut university.

If you’re part of an established company, student team or faculty associated with a Connecticut university, and you have a great idea in the area of medical devices, drug delivery, diagnostics, or health IT, take the first step to  improving human health.
