IMPEL+ provides value to Innovators in at least three critical areas:
World-Class Pitch Coaching
Expert Silicon Valley Coaches provide dynamic guidance using interactive tailored exercises, on-camera training, and live professional critique for Innovators to develop roadmaps and value proposition for critical audiences.
Growing Innovators' Networks
Develop sustainable relationships between building entrepreneurs, industry and manufacturing collaborators, professionals, and national labs.
Access to Incubation Opportunities
Workshop participants will have twin pipelines of access to strategic stakeholders that could help selected Innovators spin out or hand off their technologies. This is specifically designed to de-risk earlier stage technologies by leveraging public sector funding and validation, and as possible, private funding.
