General Inception

GI is a venture studio incubator that partners with scientific founders at or soon after company formation. A key distinguishing feature of GI compared to other incubators, accelerators and venture studios is its ability to go beyond developing and validating business plans by translating an idea into a proof of concept, prototype, or MVP.

It accomplishes this by leveraging a portfolio of R&D partners comprising over 400 scientists, engineers, and designers…and growing. While the healthcare and life science verticals are an area of particular specialty for GI today, it is open to co-founding or pre-seeding great companies in virtually any area of technology or industry vertical as long as:

There is patented or patentable innovation which solves a complex technical problem and business plan can be arrived at with less than $1M of spend
The innovation is fundamentally game-changing by improving upon state-of-the-art by at least 10X and ideally 1,000X+
It is plausible that a backable team and business plan can be arrived at with less than $1M of spend

GI is the conception and creation of VVP MD, Dr. Paul Conley, who serves as Chairman. GI leverages and significantly expands VVP’s existing efforts with university IP.
