This category includes technologies that have started from the deep scientific research, developed the innovative technology to solve the urgent problem of a mankind, have it patent-protected, launched a viable commercial product and moved into the stage of a mature company with assembled activity, understandable business model, established structure of partners and suppliers, high profit margins and turnover. In general, at this stage the companies have already left the "Death Valley" and reached the break-even point that facilitates Due Diligence to estimate the company value. At this stage, the goal of a Science Spinoff is to quickly achieve the dominant position in as many markets as possible, thus increasing the company value for future sale. In case a Science Spinoff with intellectual property protected has managed to achieve commercial success and excellent financial KPIs, and received the first M&A offers from strategic investors (large corporations or investment funds), the cost of becoming an investor into it starts from $20 million. At this stage of development, funding a Science Spinoff brings dividends to the investor as a co-owner or implies future profit at the "exit" of the company, i.e. at the selling of the company to strategic investors or at the IPO (Initial Public Offering). At the PRODUCTS category you can find exclusive interviews with scientists and company management, as well as full documentation and analytical reviews from the SPINOFF.COM team. If one of the Science Spinoffs is of your interest in terms of partnership and funding, you will find all the necessary information and contact information of the scientists at the bottom of each article page. If you consider your technology is worth to be listed in SPINOFF.COM collection, please send us detailed information about your project to firstname.lastname@example.org and after a thorough analysis, we will contact you.

Exclusive interview for SPINOFF with Mrs. Ekaterina Bereziy - co-founder and head of business development and Mrs. Elena Pismennaia - project manager of ExoAtlet company
ExoAtlet company is developing exoskeletons allowing people with muscle-skeleton disorders to move freely and enjoy life. ExoAtlet is a medical exoskeleton designed for the rehabilitation of patients with locomotive impairments to their lower limbs sustained as the result of an accident, an operation or illness of the locomotive system or nervous system. ExoAtlet is a motor-operated skeleton fixed on a body helping to walk, sit and rise up independently. For those who have been recently injured and partially have lost the sensitivity of legs it is the way to completely restore the motion functions, and for the disabled in a wheelchair it is an opportunity to visit earlier inaccessible places and an effective means of rehabilitation: usual walking significantly improves health indicators and brings back the feeling of freedom and happiness.
