HTL Life is a multi-disciplinary, applied science accelerator that gives companies and researchers the support they need to translate products and research into commercially viable companies. This is accomplished in three ways:

  1. One-on-one mentoring: Our partners and associates, as well as select outside mentors, work with founders to develop key corporate functions, specifically: executive leadership, strategic planning, sales, marketing, legal, financial planning, regulatory planning, and other higher-level corporate functions. Additionally, we connect technical staff with top researchers to assist with specific problems where appropriate.
  2. Clustering: We fund companies that match a specific product cluster to promote integration of hardware, software and biotech solutions. Clustering allows founders greater insight into problems while providing intensive peer mentoring and collaboration to discover breakthroughs – ensuring idea cross-pollination.
  3. Seminars: Every week we have a company dinner where we bring in lecturers on key specific business and research topics. Lecturers will give a presentation and then be available for questions and one-on-one discussions. Topics include:
  • Hardware Product Development
  • Regulatory Issues
  • Legal Issues
  • Machine Learning
  • Strategic Communications
  • Hardware Product Design
  • Robotics
  • Biotechnology Startup Development
  • Startup Leadership
  • Investor Perspectives
  • Intellectual Property Protection
