Global University Venturing is happy to introduce the first of its spinout tracker lists — updated weekly — which will surface the most exciting new and emerging university spinouts.

We welcome submissions from tech transfer offices with information on their latest spinouts. If you would like one of your portfolio companies considered for inclusion in a future list, please send us an email. Eligible companies do not need to have raised funding yet but must be early stage.
