StartupHub Portal

Matching entrepreneurs and investors with high-potential, high-tech opportunities 

Launched in 2024, the StartupHub is a web-based resource to connect high-tech entrepreneurs with promising inventions and startups. Through the site, we match the most promising inventions coming out of the university’s offices and laboratories with entrepreneurs outside the university who have the passion, talent, and experience to form startups to lead them forward. 

  • Browse opportunities in a variety of vertical markets, from biomedical to engineering to pharmaceuticals. 
  • Read easy-do-digest snapshots of each opportunity to help you quickly understand each opportunity, including problem, opportunity, challenge and status
  • Get to know the inventors, their innovations, and their visions for the future through short video profiles.
  • Quickly connect with TLA team members to get your questions answered and deepen your exploration.
