The Kambria Global Innovation Fund facilitates collaboration between researchers and companies worldwide. Companies interested in making connections with top universities can access the fund to invest in advanced R&D. Researchers can put antiquated grant-writing behind and easily connect to much-needed capital.
Core Offerings
Research Funding
Researchers can receive corporate funding for actionable research projects that are progressing technologies toward real-world applications in data science, AI, robotics and additive manufacturing.
Innovation Search
Companies can engage Kambria to search for solutions from university research teams that could meet their technological requirements.
The Challenges
For Researchers
Applying for grants is a huge pain point for professors and researchers since lengthy applications take an enormous amount of time, sometimes involving 80+ page proposals. Plus, funding is often limited to a school or a professor’s network because the majority of researchers lack time to cultivate funding from diverse sources.
For Corporations
Today, global success and dominance is associated with being a tech-first, innovative company. However, while many companies have monetary resources, they lack the expertise to build a capable R&D. In fact, the rich industry/academia relationships prevalent in Silicon Valley and other research hubs are extremely difficult for companies to bootstrap and replicate.
The
Solution
The Global Innovation Fund aims to change the antiquated grant application process and make R&D investment cross-border, scalable, and radically more efficient.

Through the Fund, Kambria will leverage its academic and corporate networks to globally connect researchers looking for funding with companies seeking advanced technology resources.
