About the UNeTech Institute

UNeTech is a state- and grant-supported translational research institute. We provide funding for projects that fall between basic science research grants and private investment – often called the valley of death.

UNeTech works with inventors and entrepreneurs. Our primary mission is to use the world class research of UNMC and the UNO to add value to startups. We have partners who are tenured professors, community physicians and entrepreneurs in Omaha and across the globe. Through our blog, you will see the diverse partners we work with.

UNeTech selects projects for which it can be an initial investor. We can then support the work of the University of Nebraska in return for an investment in a startup for the value of that research. UNeTech can assist on any technical matter that someone at the University of Nebraska Omaha or University of Nebraska Medical Center is engaged in meaningful research – it’s pretty hard to find something we can’t help you with.

UNeTech has a long track record working with faculty and founders as they build their startups, offering services like support for SBIR/STTR, customer discovery and customer development, entrepreneurial matchmaking, and building the perfect team.
