Innovation is at the heart of our enterprise. The Gore Innovation Center in Silicon Valley is a place where we collaborate, explore and spark opportunities with fellow inventors. From our recent Digital Health Innovation Day to forums and make-a-thons, we partner to solve challenges and bring new ideas to life.   

Since 1958, Gore has pushed the envelope of materials expertise with thousands of products that change lives and industries. Whether they protect explorers atop the world’s highest peaks, travel deep into space to enable new discoveries, or work inside the human body to save and improve lives, Gore products solve complex problems and perform as promised, time and time again. And as the company that invented expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) — a remarkably versatile polymer that is chemically inert, lightweight and strong — we remain a worldwide fluoropolymer leader committed to collaborating closely with our partners to solve the toughest technical challenges.
