SI provides many resources to help launch entrepreneurial ventures including commercial/market assessment, commercial development planning, start-up advising, business documentation and support services, mentoring programs, business accelerator program, venture fellows, entrepreneurs-in-residence, internship programs, business plan development, gap funds and grant writing assistance.  Spartan Innovations also works in concert with Red Cedar Ventures, the venture arm of the MSU Foundation (https://www.redcedarventures.com/home), in developing funding milestones and applying programmatic investment into these new entities.  It is expected that entities created through the Spartan Innovations process, when significantly de-risked, will be transferred to the Red Cedar Ventures portfolio for continued development and preparation for larger Angel and VC investment funding.
