About STRIDE

History

STRIDE began as a Delaware not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation in 2016 by a group of 100+ scientists from DuPont’s central R&D.

Our mission: To contribute to the economic development of the State of Delaware by growing science-based businesses and scientific talent.

Our activities include STEM education outreachstart-up support, grant-funded R&D, professional seminars & networking, and mentorship of young scientists.

In 2017, STRIDE launched STRIDE Services Inc. (SSI), as a for-profit subsidiary for the purpose of employing local scientific talent to perform R&D and consulting services.  STRIDE provided initial financing to enable the start-up phase of this business, and an increasing number of STRIDE’s members and other scientists are now engaged in providing services to SSI’s clients.
