Giving Blueday | March 10, 2021

We hope you will support our efforts at Technology Transfer as we transform U-M research discoveries into technologies to improve quality of life, fuel economic development, and change the world.

The University of Michigan’s vast research enterprise launches over 20 new startups per year. These startups create opportunities for U-M innovators, graduates, and drive economic growth.

Today, your donation will support a philanthropic investment fund to provide early-stage capital for U-M tech startups.

A gift to the Accelerate Blue Fund will provide resources to enhance Tech Transfer’s capabilities and accelerate the impact of the world-changing research discoveries from the University of Michigan to the marketplace.

All returns from Accelerate Blue investments will cycle back into the fund, creating an evergreen source of early-stage, high-impact investment capital for U-M startup companies in the future.
