Yale Faculty Innovation Awards Inaugural Class of 12 Honorees

Yale Faculty Award Recipients

Each year faculty across Yale develop new technologies and launch startups addressing global challenges. From improving human health and addressing climate change, to building the future of quantum computing, these companies are poised to change the world.

Last night's Yale Faculty Innovation Awards provided an opportunity to recognize the significant contributions of these faculty investigators who bring their discoveries to market and launch Yale innovation into the world.

“Each of our honorees illustrates how we can translate research into beneficial products, services, and social ventures. And together, they offer an exciting glimpse of the boundless promise our future holds.” - Yale President Peter Salovey

The inaugural class of 12 awardees represents some of the 60 new ventures launched at Yale in recent years. These startups have generated over $3.7 billion in venture capital investment. And they contribute to a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship responsible for 1,600 patents over the past 4 decades.

“The Yale Faculty Innovation Award makes crystal clear to the entire Yale community that the university appreciates, recognizes and celebrates our faculty launching new startup companies that can change the world.” - Managing Director Josh Geballe
