What is D2P?
Discovery to Product (D2P) provides resources for innovations from students to faculty to bridge the gap from good idea to reality. Selected pre-company formation projects are incubated and their teams receive lean startup trainings so that their projects can be more effectively commercialized. For more information contact John Biondi (firstname.lastname@example.org).

- ACE can identify barriers to D2P success and recommended UW actions and policy that supports D2P new ventures
- Experienced ACE entrepreneurs can advise D2P start-ups
- ACE can ensure that graduate students and and post-docs interested in entrepreneurship receive training in business skils
