Sanford Health Launch Startup Program

Sanford Health wanted to encourage curiosity and learning among the health community. It had seen growth in even the most uncertain times of the pandemic and wanted to further stimulate this growth. So, it created a commercialization team that helps employees license their inventions and open businesses. Inventions created at Sanford Health are turned into products for sale through commercialization. This can lead to employees creating their very own startup business. 

Sanford Health has worked with other major universities and institutions, such as New York University, the University of South Dakota, and John Hopkins Hospital among others. With the University of South Dakota, Sanford Health has helped develop a training program called the Technology Readiness Acceleration Centre (TRAC) for scientific entrepreneurs in South Dakota to learn commercialization, how to make a startup, and how to grow your new company.
