MHV Labs is the company conception and formation process of Militia Hill Ventures.  Through the MHV network of industry and academic experts, MHV Labs is where the best company ideas are discussed, evaluated and incubated.

MHV Labs employs an active build model to form and develop new ventures focused on therapeutics with active operational involvement at every stage of the process from conception through operation.  Once an unaddressed medical need is identified and selected, a comprehensive global evaluation is conducted of all applicable technologies and solutions.  The best technology and talent is acquired, and a business plan is developed to commercialize the technology most effectively.  MHV Labs then launches a company, builds the management team, and secures the necessary financing to develop the technology efficiently.
