IQT Emerge provides commercialization assistance to government-funded researchers and early-stage startups by facilitating catalytic funding, providing commercialization advice, and helping to recruit a businessperson with entrepreneurship experience to develop go-to-market and growth strategies.

Do you have experience helping launch companies? Do you want to be on the ground floor of promising startups with government funding? Do you want the opportunity to help set strategy in an early-stage startup? If so, the opportunities below may interest you and we encourage you to submit the requested information. If your background makes you a good match for a researcher or company we support (or may support in the future), we will share your information with the researcher/startup, and you will be contacted about possible next steps. IQT Emerge posts or reposts these opportunities in collaboration with the organizations we support. All hiring decisions are made independently by the researcher/startup, not IQT Emerge.
