Idea Cycle

Advancing the Ideas of West Michigan

Idea cycle is a program with a collaborative model dedicated to transforming product ideas in into reality. Idea Cycle provides the infrastructure necessary to effectively mine, assess and protect novel life science ideas in West Michigan. The program can also fund the most promising through early stage development, protect concepts through patent and then strategically exit through license, partnership or spin-out.

Formally called the BioTech Commercialization Project, Idea Cycle has successfully engaged top regional health care organizations as its partners, including Spectrum Health, Saint Mary's Healthcare, the Van Andel Institute, Michigan Medical PC and Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital.
