It’s not just about what you innovate.

It’s also about having a robust understanding of business.

Creating something extraordinary is what got you this far. But there’s more to commercializing than just the end product. It’s not what you know it’s who you know, is more true than ever when you’re looking for funding.

In partnership with the National Institute of Aerospace (NIA), we’ve helped researchers, engineers, and inventors make the connections they need to launch.

Join our membership to connect with talented top-of-class experts in materials sciences/chemistry, aerospace, robotics, artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, quantum information sciences, biotechnology, clean energy, and more.

Validate the commercial viability of your idea.

Every startup founder fundamentally follows the scientific method.

When you decide to commercialize (aka your hypothesis to solve a market need), it’s time to experiment, test, and analyze. But just like in science, it’s vital to know how to test.

That’s why having the right business mentors in your corner is so important. Without them, you can’t even begin to prove your market needs hypothesis right or wrong… because you can’t run an accurate test.

That’s why REaKTOR was formed; to provide scientists the tools they need to build a business.

Get hands-on help with grants and private fundraising.

To take the stress out of an already-complex funding process, mentors help you find eligible grants and write applications. Our ultimate goal?
