ASCEND offers technology review to all innovators within ASCEND partner institutions. Technologies and companies can receive feedback on areas such as: commercial potential, unmet need, suggested next steps, and resources or experiments that could help to increase the technology readiness level. Technologies and companies that reach a stage of development where they would benefit from more extensive advising will then be eligible for Business Advising through ASCEND.

Business advising will include a gap analysis to determine what is needed to take the next step (partnering, out-licensing, investment, etc.) and one-on-one mentoring to help them achieve that goal. ASCEND will also help them identify what the appropriate next step is and help them secure necessary funding.
