VCU Innovation Gateway

To support the implementation of the VCU strategic plan, Quest for Distinction, VCU Tech Transfer has broadened its mission and activities. The office is not only responsible for commercializing VCU research, but is now committed to enhancing the overall culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at VCU and contributing to the growth of the region’s innovation ecosystem. This broader mission will foster collaborations with local and prospective companies to build external support for our inventors; will grow an entrepreneurial population that could help us commercialize our technologies through new venture creation and thus support economic growth of our region. To reflect this enhanced role, VCU Tech Transfer has been re-named VCU Innovation Gateway. At VCU Innovation Gateway, we are dedicated to VCU’s success within a growing regional ecosystem.


Our mission is to facilitate commercialization of university inventions; support university research through collaborative agreements; foster a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship at the university; and promote regional economic development and new venture creation.
