About Our Startups

Nurturing and launching new ventures is a key component of Enterprise Innovation’s business development strategies. In addition to development and dissemination of Weill Cornell Medicine technologies, these new venture creation efforts contribute to the expansion of New York City as a burgeoning biotech hub and many of Weill Cornell Medicine startups are rooted in New York. 

By translating groundbreaking research into innovative care through new venture creation, we not only revolutionize diagnostics, treatments and health-care solutions for patients but also create new job opportunities and fuel local economic growth.
