Start-Up Factory™ Commercializing Laboratory Innovations Since 2011.
In our innovative model we license technologies directly from research institutions to create investable companies. We work with scientists interested in commercializing their innovations, while allowing them to keep their day job. NMSUF focuses on intellectual property validation, market evaluation, and pairing the right management and technical team to the startup. A commercialization and business plan/model is created and if all signs point to a sound market opportunity with promising technological development, a company is formed. Companies and scientists who successfully complete the educational piece of the program are open to investment from the Start-Up Factory™ Fund.
To date Start-Up Factory™ has created 11 technology companies.
