Through our relationships with universities, accelerators, research labs, hospitals and research institutes worldwide, we provide our partners with the most current insights into ground-breaking research, emerging startups and vibrant innovation ecosystems to complement their own innovation programs.

Startup Analysis

A key part of the platform is a standards-based rating system for the innovators and startups. There is often significant difference between an academic researcher with a prototype in her lab and the startup that has raised funds and serves paying customers. Today, there is no way for investors, corporations or large hospitals to know which technology or startup is best suited for their level of investment or resources.


Through our customized research platform and standards-based rankings, Equal Innovation provides the best recommendations for organizations seeking to deploy the latest technology, products or services in their fields.

Equal Innovation partners with large organizations to design and manage accelerators, entrepreneurship programs and proof of concept centers.
