Invention. Connection. Results

The Innovation Center of the Rockies (ICR) connects talent with opportunity. Our core skill is getting the right people in the room. The ICR works closely with the Tech Transfer Offices at the University of Colorado, the Colorado School of Mines, the University of Denver, the University of Wyoming and Colorado State University to understand the commercial potential of their inventions. The ICR also assists high potential early stage companies.

To support these efforts, we’ve developed a database of more than 1,600 advisors that we draw from to help local early stage companies and commercialize technology from the University of Colorado, the Colorado School of Mines, the University of Wyoming, the University of Denver and Colorado State University. If you think you have the right background, experience and interest to work with the next generation of companies, drop us an email with your resume.  We would like to speak with you. Example University Projects.

The Innovation Center of the Rockies works with local Universities to understand and develop viable pathways to market for their inventions. Our role is to recruit the business talent that can provide this guidance. Read More...
