The Center for Innovation
The Center for Innovation (CFI), a nonprofit LLC, serves as a catalyst for technology based economic development. The Center supports a strategic approach to the formation of collaborative partnerships, facilitating and enabling the integration of industry, academic, and government research and discovery with venture capital and talent & know how. CFI is focused on the commercialization of technology-based research outcomes from universities, industries and U.S. federal labs, leading to the evolutionary development of integrated industry clusters.
The Center is focused on three strategic initiatives:
- 1. Deal Flow: creating world-class deal flow, by fostering technology discovery and access to technology from federal labs, universities, and industry.
- 2. Venture Capital: catalyzing the formation of a strong venture capital industry in our multi-state region, creating access to the nation’s venture capital industry.
- 3. Talent & Know How: developing and attracting talent & know how, by supporting entrepreneurial development, in partnership with our nation’s educational institutions, governmental entities, and the business community, creating the environment that nurtures and sustains an entrepreneurial culture.
The Center’s work is global, national, regional, and local in scope, premised on the concept that our future U.S. economic sustainability is dependent upon fostering collaboration among and between our nation’s federal labs, research oriented universities, technology based economic development entities, and the venture capital industry; resulting in greater affordability, reliability, and efficiency for all parties.
