Hyper Innovation Tech Exploration Lab

Innovation. Technology. Talent.

The Tech Exploration Lab is a bridge for university-industry collaboration, the Lab offers companies new and more efficient ways to engage a talent pipeline while surfacing opportunities and de-risking exploration of use cases for emerging tech.

Companies can join the Lab’s learning network, sponsor projects and reverse pitches, and gain visibility at online and in-person events. Some Lab highlights this year include:

Accelerating Tech Exploration and Innovation

Companies have the opportunity to sponsor projects or bring early-stage ideas in for frameworks that bridge the gap between idea and commercialization. Some examples this year include:

  • Holos, a growing virtual reality startup, continues to grow a sustained, engaged tech talent pipeline by sponsoring projects in the Lab that engage students while solving problems for the company. Holos provides their platform and mentorship to student teams to explore new use cases for their tech to define the workplace of the future and other use cases with virtual reality.
  • A UW-Madison student-founded early stage startup with a machine learning and AI solution is gaining access to industry connections, customer validation, and frameworks for bridging the gap between idea and commercialization in the Lab.
