Translating academic    discoveries into real-world impact with Lab-to-Life (L2L) outcomes-based financing.

Who we are

The PALIO Impact Funding Accelerator is a nonprofit corporation dedicated to calibrating academic research for social solutions with outcomes-based investment loans, unlocking the impact potential of academic discoveries.

PIMFA focuses on research in sustainability, health, housing, education & the arts, and social justice

Funding the Gap

PALIO believes that potential solutions to many of society’s most pressing problems exist in the research occurring in academic labs across the country.


Promising research often loses momentum due to insufficient access to growth capital.

It is imperative that we develop the funding to enable research teams to refine and scale their real-world applications so that these solutions may be developed into policy.


The Palio Impact Funding Accelerator (PIMFA) funds the “gap” between impact-focused research and success-based investment loan payoffs.
