The R2B or Research to Business, pre-incubator program, is open all year-round to Aalto University origin innovations and inventions based on research. The projects are especially at an idea phase and have a focus on technological research. Once these projects incorporate, Aalto Startup Center can offer its Business Generator, accelerator program.
R2B helps these research projects to make a smooth transition from academia to industry by:
- Helping research projects to reach higher targets in their innovation readiness levels
- Helping research projects on business-related matters
- With the help of business advisors, assisting projects with the commercialization, funding, market analysis and research, as well as understanding the customer potential
- Working together with the Aalto Innovation Services which leads Research to Business IPR and commercialization support processes
- Helping research projects to recruit Business Developers to join the teams (Learn more about Business Developers, here)
