OUR MISSION

The mission of NovioTech BV is to bring new technologies to the market.
In order to do that, NovioTech works closely together with academia and research centers and has a wide international network both in clinical research (academic hospitals), industry and finance.

SCOUT FOR NEW TECHNOLOGIES

We actively scout for new technologies in various areas. We specialise in: smart materials, biocompatible materials, fine chemicals, horticulture, pesticides, medical devices, biotechnology, semiconductor technology, ultrasound, wearable sensors.

SCOUT FOR ENTREPRENEURS

We are looking for people with that unique mix of entrepreneurial spirit, mentality to make anything happen and a healthy thirst for successfully launched innovations that make a difference.

DEVELOP INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

The effective use of the tools of IP plays an important role in reducing risk for the players involved, who may then be able to reap acceptable returns for their participation in the process. IP plays an important role in facilitating the process of taking innovative technology to the market place.

DEVELOP BUSINESSES & TECHNOLOGIES

A great idea is the seed of a good business, but it can only grow to its full potential if it is cultivated properly. Growing a new business from the seed of an idea is tough, but fortunately there are tools and services designed to help entrepreneurs along the way

ABOUT US

We bridge the gap between promising high-tech ideas/products and the financing required for production/marketing/sales. Together with scientists we bring early stage technologies to proof of concept, file IP, and make them ready for further and larger investments.

 

We act as a kind of “incubator” where not only we create new businesses and companies but also educate scientists to become more entrepreneurial and to understand the business environment. In this way we are developing a portfolio of new high-tech companies.
