"Narrowing the gap between great research and great business opportunities."

 

Services

Green chemistry has tremendous potential to have a positive impact on our environment and our lives, provided you get ideas out of the lab and into commercial applications. Making that transition involves building a business case and putting an emphasis on product development—not traditionally areas of expertise for researchers.

GreenCentre’s collaborative model for commercialization can fill this gap between great research and great business opportunities. Our strong relationships with global companies provide networking opportunities to get innovations in the hands of those who can help.

 

Our services include:


                Technology review and due diligence
                Intellectual property assessment and protection
                Helping to identify and assess value to industry with market analysis
                Product and/or process development to address industry needs
                Application development
                Scale-up synthesis and customer sample preparation
                Business plan development
                Creation of sales and marketing channels

 

Our expertise includes:


                Industry members who assess and validate technology opportunities
                Commercialization managers in catalysis, fine chemicals/pharmaceuticals
                Business development officers
                Scientific teams in catalysis, fine chemicals/pharmaceuticals, polymers and     materials and petrochemicals

Our Process

GreenCentre uses a four-step process to commercialization

GreenCentre works in partnership with the researcher and their technology transfer office to help realize the potential of their research. We accept solicited and unsolicited early-stage technologies that have moved beyond basic research and are into the development stage.

 

 

1. DISCLOSURE


                We accept and assess early-stage technology disclosures from academic institutions
                Our principal point of contact is the technology transfer/industry liaison officer
                GreenCentre will execute all necessary confidentiality agreements and ensure that project submissions are kept confidential

 

2. ANALYSIS


                Under a 90-day exclusive option, we conduct a technological assessment when appropriate
                GreenCentre’s industry partners provide input
                Analysis is shared with the institution
                Possible outcomes: return, proof-of-principle funding, or in-licensing

 

3. LICENSING


                Fair licensing terms
                There are no upfront costs; we cover all development and IP costs going forward
                Institution/inventors share in all licensing returns

 

4. DEVELOPMENT


                GreenCentre makes the investments needed to close the market gap:
        •                Process optimization
                        Field-test proof of utility
                        Scale-up of product candidates
                        Application development
                        Pre-commercial sales
                GreenCentre will license the technology or create start-ups and start sending licensing revenue back to the inventors

Our Commitment

Our services are provided with no up-front cost to the researcher or their institution. GreenCentre will execute the necessary confidentiality agreements and will ensure project submissions are kept confidential.

As technologies are commercialized, our academic clients and their technology transfer offices share in the returns by those technologies. They also share in returns generated by GreenCentre-led improvements to those technologies. When discoveries create public benefit, institutions, researchers, and taxpayers are rewarded for their investments in basic research.
