Definition Edit

The Valley of Death is

a gap in funding or investment that can occur after research on a new technology and its initial development.[1]

Overview Edit

"Specifically, the Valley of Death concerns the gap in support (typically, a lack of access to capital) that characterizes the transition of an invention from the point of validation in a laboratory environment to prototype demonstration in a non-laboratory environment (prior to acquisition by industry as a commercial product)."[2]
