Collectively, We Innovate
Together, We Transform

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is a center of scholarship, research excellence and creativity, developing transformative ideas in its classrooms, clinics, and laboratories. As a public university, transferring these ideas into the real world to the benefit of the world around us is central to the University’s mission. Accelerating the knowledge generated and getting it into the commercial marketplace to improve the quality of life and economic conditions of the people of North Carolina, the nation, and beyond is a practical method for pursuing this mission. Closing the funding gap for early-stage companies and supporting their ongoing efforts is critical.

To ensure this impact, UNC-Chapel Hill, in conjunction with UNC Health, created Carolina Research Ventures (CRV) to unlock the potential of its technologies and entrepreneurs, advancing their commercialization efforts by providing capital and expertise.
