CDL Recovery: Applications Now Open

The Scheller College of Business has joined the Creative Destruction Lab’s global network to launch a program that addresses public health and economic recovery challenges that are emerging in the current crisis.

Applications are now being accepted from all types of innovative teams.

The Creative Destruction Lab’s mission is to transform science projects into massively scalable products and services that benefit mankind. CDL engages leading entrepreneurs, economists, scientists, inventors, business leaders, and investors from around the world to enhance the idea-to-deployment cycle of innovative science and technology via a rigorous, objective-setting process. The program has been a proven success in bringing to market new technologies in a diverse set of frontier fields, including quantum computing, space, and artificial intelligence, creating billions of dollars in equity value in its short history.

CDL Recovery will apply CDL’s objectives-based mentorship model to rapidly transform scientific innovations into products and services that address the public health and economic recovery challenges that are emerging in the current crisis. The program is designed to anticipate and address some of the most pressing needs that will arise over the next six to eighteen months. CDL Recovery will be a global program, delivered virtually, drawing on our global network of mentors, scientists, economists and investors as well as on public and private sector partners.
