THE BLUE UMBRELLA MISSION: WORKING TO MEANINGFULLY IMPROVE THE LIVES OF PEOPLE WITH AUTISM AND NEURO DIFFERENCES THROUGH LARGE-SCALE BUSINESS VENTURES



We are dedicated to supporting global innovators taking on the biggest challenges and opportunities in autism and neurodiversity. Blue Umbrella provides a curated guide to the emerging global autism and neuro-tech industry.


Our Vision and Aspirations

Despite the rapid global growth of autism and neuro-tech solutions, the market is highly fragmented and disconnected. The innovation community lacks a platform for discovery, connection, and support. Blue Umbrella seeks to break down the barriers to building autism and neurodiverse businesses by bringing stakeholders to one place and expanding resources built to accelerate growth.


Together, we can meaningfully improve the lives of people across the spectrum.

We seek to forge connections between healthcare insurers, employers, corporates, and emerging autism innovation startups to ensure the growing ASD community finds the best solutions in the midst of rapidly evolving science and technology. Our goal is to use our database to inform large institutions about the brightest rising innovations, and give groundbreaking products access to exposure and funding in order to help those in need and ensure that innovators are aware of the largest gaps in the market.


For entrepreneurs, autism tech companies, and corporate innovators launching ventures to serve people with autism, Blue Umbrella Ventures is an accelerator that provides direct links to buyers, market sizing data, and connections to the autism community and researchers.


Unlike other accelerators, we have a targeted focus on autism and neurodiversity.

For employers, insurance and education companies, foundations, investors, autism service providers, and government agencies looking for innovative cost-effective autism solutions, Blue Umbrella Ventures is a partner that provides access to high-quality entrepreneurs and experts solving real pain points around autism.

Autism Innovation

Autism is a medical condition with no known medical solutions. Autism is a neurological disorder with significant social, behavioral and educational challenges. Developing products for the autism community requires a unique combination of skills, talents, and experiences that span across multiple disciplines.


Although developing products is a major challenge, it is only the first step in approaching some of the biggest challenges facing the autism community.


The challenges that loom after product development are tremendous. Through research and experience with bringing products to market, Blue Umbrella has identified key barriers to innovation in the autism space.
