uStartups is a special crowdfunding donation platform created to promote the maturation of university science and engineering projects to the point where they have real world impacts. uStartups is a crowdfunding platform so that donors can provide this crucial research “maturation” funding to faculty and student researchers so that they can continue their science and technology-based university inventions once the federal funding dries up. The funding provided by uStartups donors is essential to help university researchers move their discoveries into concrete, real life products and services for patients and users around the world.

Providing our scientists and students with research maturation funding will go a long way towards making the world a better place. Imagine the deadly diseases waiting to be cured, the new high-tech industries waiting to be created, the next generation of innovative leaders waiting to get going - our donors help make this imagined world a reality!
