R2B, or the Research to Business pre-incubator programme, is open year-round to original innovations and inventions based on research at Aalto University. The programme is especially for projects that are at the idea stage and that focus on technological research. Once these projects have incorporated, Aalto Startup Center can offer them its Business Generator accelerator programme.
