Startup WV Launched by West Virginia University

West Virginia University’s Startup WV wants to align resources available at the university and encourage innovation in the state. The goal is to create new research and development opportunities, new jobs, and new solutions. Inspired by Virgin Hyperloop, an R&D startup, which chose West Virginia for its new certification facility site, WVU decided to try and expand R&D in the state.

Their mission involves responding to the economic needs of the state, driving momentum for creating intellectual properties and startups, and working with small businesses. Universities are uniquely positioned with resources and talent to help advance us into a technological society. Innovation is everywhere and with the help of Startup WV, West Virginia University hopes to bring these ideas to light.

Are you developing new software for an existing application? Did you know your development work could be eligible for the R&D Tax Credit and you can receive up to 14% back on your expenses? Even if your development isn’t successful your work may still qualify for R&D credits (i.e. you don’t need to have a patent to qualify). To find out more, please contact a Swanson Reed R&D Specialist today or check out our free online eligibility test.
