We can help you get where you want to go, faster.
We provide innovative health professionals with advice on product design, market validation and health innovation funding options.
Does the idea belong to you?
Will it offer health benefits?
Does it have commercial potential?
We’ll meet, provide advice and discuss possibilities. We’ll prepare initial analysis, usually including freedom to operate, review results and discuss appropriate pathways with you.
Depending on the innovation and your goals, we may aim to form a venture around the idea; or perhaps we’ll work to license a technology to an established company. No matter the pathway, the ultimate benefits will be shared fairly and equitably.
We are here to commercialise New Zealand’s public health sector intellectual property, innovations, and initiatives with strategic partners for better health outcomes.
