The World’s Largest Spinoff Platform

Over 3 million customer-views monthly
41 years of spinoff experience in one place

The creation of spinoff is one of the technology transfer mechanisms through which knowledge and/or intellectual property are transferred, by which research results are commercially exploited. This implies that the economic activity of a spinoff is based on scientific knowledge or technological know-how developed within the university, or other non-commercial institutions or organizations, e.g. NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration).

Being the world’s largest spinoff platform, we aspire to foster innovation on a global level. Our mission is to consistently/continuously promote and support of established spinoff companies via Spinoff Award recognition and our dynamic media activity; to increase the number of successful new spinoffs due to the realization of three following factors:

• Growing number of research specialists who would venture to commercialize the developed innovative technology and establish their own spinoff with professional training and the proper assistance in the analysis and planning;

• Formation of an effective, risk-eliminated pipeline for technology commercialization and a faster payback period due to the proactive work with mentors, lawyers, partners, employees, investors, distributors and others within the technology commercialization environment, and due to assist in the proper process planning and realization;

• Constant support and consultation on the selling of the company and investing in the new promising projects.

We understand that money is a critical issue for the rising spinoff, thus our independent non-profit organization doesn’t charge for payment (accept payment) for the services provided and is funded by the grants and sponsorship from successful spinoff companies.

We express our gratitude to NASA, Max  Planck Institutes, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, University of California-Berkeley, California Institute of Technology, Carnegie Mellon University, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg, Technical University of Munich, Technical University of Denmark, University of Oxford, London Business School, INSEAD, London School of Economics and Political Science, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO, Saint-Petersburg University of Economics, Siemens AGRobert Bosch GmbHMercedes-Benz, JP Morgan Chase & Co., HeidelbergCement AG, Pfizer Inc., Gazprom PJSC, Google Inc., General Electric Company, Koninklijke Philips N.V., Samsung Group, International Business Machines Corporation, Bayer AG, E.

Alkahest

Young blood plasma for rejuvenation

Alkahest is a privately held biopharmaceutical company focused on developing therapies derived from blood and plasma to treat neurodegenerative diseases and other age-related conditions. The company was founded upon the scientific, technological advances and empirical findings of Dr. Tony Wyss-Coray and the researchers at Stanford University. Their scientific data support the existence of beneficial “rejuvenating” factors in young plasma and the presence of “age-promoting” factors in old plasma. With further development, Alkahest’s mission is to extend quality of life in old age.

Quasicrystals

Crystals with "impossible" symmetry

Quasіcrystals are sоlіds, that exhіbіt symmetrіes lоng thоught fоrbіdden іn nature, discovered by Prоf. Danіel Shechtman оf Technіоn Unіversіty, Іsrael. Mоst crystals are cоmpоsed оf a three-dіmensіоnal arrangement оf atоms that repeat іn an оrderly pattern. Dependіng оn theіr chemіcal cоmpоsіtіоn, they have dіfferent symmetrіes. Quasіcrystals behave dіfferently than оther crystals. They have an оrderly pattern that іncludes pentagоns, fіvefоld shapes, but unlіke оther crystals, the pattern never repeats іtself exactly. Quasіcrystals are used іn surgіcal іnstruments, LED lіghts and nоn-stіck fryіng pans. They have pооr heat cоnductіvіty, whіch makes them gооd іnsulatоrs. Іn 2011 Danіel Shechtman was awarded the Nоbel Prіze іn chemіstry fоr dіscоvery оf quasіcrystals.
