We believe low-cost, high-quality, and easy-to-use tools can expand access to science.
Tool Foundry is a Luminary Labs initiative funded by grants from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and Schmidt Futures to expand access to science.
The Tool Foundry accelerator is a four-month program designed to help a diverse cohort of teams iterate and scale accessible and powerful scientific discovery tools.
Meet the cohort
Based on the selection criteria — including team ability, growth potential, and vision — Tool Foundry invited five teams working on accessible tools in application areas including biomedical imaging, health and environmental monitoring, and digital fabrication to join the accelerator cohort.
How the Tool Foundry accelerator works
The four-month accelerator will provide participating teams with resources and networks to develop, iterate, and strengthen their tools, while building a foundation for sustainable growth.
