Start-Up Factory™ is bringing laboratory technologies to market. In our innovative model we work with scientists looking to commercialize their technologies. Through our program, technologists are coached through validation of the technology and market, and are then paired with the right management team. A commercialization and business plan/model is formed and if all signs point to a sound market and promising technological development, a company is formed.
Creating Investable Companies.
Companies and scientists who successfully complete the educational piece of the program are open to investment from the Start-Up Factory™ Fund.
“Some scientists do want to leave the lab to commercialize technology, but most generally don’t, so this program helps extract their knowledge and get it out to the market through experienced entrepreneurs who can take their ideas forward.”– GARY OPPEDAHL, FORMER DIRECTOR OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT, CITY OF ALBUQUERQUE
