    Founded in 2005 the Innovation Center of the Rockies is a non-profit incubator. About 80% of the Center's effort is directed at commercializing technology emerging from the University of Colorado, Colorado State University, the University of Wyoming, the University of Denver and the Colorado School of Mines. About 20% of the Center's effort is aimed at helping established high growth early stage companies overcome their key challenges. The commercialization effort has resulted in the Innovation Center of the Rockies working with 280+ research teams with 19 start-ups based on University Intellectual Property being formed. The industry sectors supported include clean technology, engineering, bioscience, IT/software, aerospace, and natural & organic foods.
