Technology Scouting & Transfer

We see technology transfer as a combination of art, science, and process in which marketable technologies are identified, analyzed, developed, and evolved into future products and services. This requires structure and discipline in practice in addition to a commitment to collaboration.

Technology Scouting – We are able to locate novel technology or new advances by small firms, university experts and government scientists in response to our client's product development needs.  Our clients provide us with their key areas of interest, and we provide alerts on new products and technology advances in line with their interest.  We track small firms, new patents, university advances, research grants, technical and trade journals, and competitor developments, among other things. Our goal is to provide insights into key technology developments before they become widely known. Upon identifying interesting technologies, we continue with an in-depth investigation and market analysis. Our market analysis laser focuses on the key factors will enable growth.

Technology Transfer - We offer a suite of tailored services to support clients interested in the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Program.  SBIR/STTR are federal government initiatives that provide billions in grants and contracts each year for small and start-up companies to develop new or enhanced products and services based on advanced technologies.

The Inncuvate venture studio helps clients operate at the intersection of transformation and innovation. We focus on the current industries posed with major challenges. This demands the need for companies to deliver products and solutions that address these challenges.

Healthcare     

Healthcare organizations are on a mission to increase patient satisfaction, lower costs and improve health. We know the opportunities and challenges created by recent legislation as the industry is in the midst of an intense transformation that will continue for at least the next decade. Organizations that can expertly manage risk while reducing costs are position to prosper as the industry makes the shift to value-based care models. Innovations need to be implemented that will help the healthcare systems thrive. There is increasing focus on the use of emerging technologies to create a responsive and data rich ecosystem that will ultimately help organizations meet the needs of the more sophisticated healthcare “consumer “rather than patient of yester and current day.

We have experience creating healthcare IT solutions and have worked with both private and public sector to transform the way technology is delivered to meet their current needs. We enable and position our clients as leaders in product development, mobility, telemedicine, and healthcare analytics.

Transportation

We see innovation in transportation from smart infrastructure (intelligent streets, digital railways), automakers focus on next generation vehicles, smart mobility services, new entrants focused on high speed rail, connected vehicles, and a connected transportation grid.  This is mostly driven by the growing proportion of the population flocking to urban areas faster than the current infrastructure and capacity can support. 

We have experience implementing solutions that address the unique challenges facing transportation organizations. Using our understanding of transportation in the digital age we provide guidance on the customer and how transport providers need to operate and manage there transportation systems to meet the traveling customer’s demands. 

Energy

The energy industry significantly impacts economic livelihood, societal functioning, and overall quality of life. Fluctuating demand, constrained supply, volatile commodity prices, and changing regulatory environments are a few of the critical challenges that need to be addressed. A number of factors are leading the industry to embrace alternative energy as a solution to be incorporated into the energy provider mix. It is no longer a matter of when, it is now a matter of how much and what is a feasible timeframe.

We provide solutions and services to help companies navigate through this environment to achieve sustainable, profitable growth.

Government

In the wake of the deep austerity facing many governments around the world we see budgets tighten across government sectors.  Leaders are faced with the challenge of doing more with less and implementing principles from more of a business mindset. Innovation is focused on supplying public services more effectively and at a reduced cost. Government bodies seeking major transformation are hampered by the existing culture, processes, and skill sets that are out of line with a technologically advanced citizen.

We work with companies to build federal market strategies and entry points, create unique federal solutions, access diverse federal contracting vehicles, understand and navigate complex federal procurement processes and identify and cultivate federal channel partners.  

Non-Profit

The nonprofit sector as a whole has the opportunity to harness the power of innovation to improve the quality of service delivery. Many nonprofits feel innovation is a luxury they can’t afford as money and resources must be mission focused. Many feel improving the way they use technology seems out of reach. We believe there are countless opportunities for quick hit low cost solutions that can transform how, and how effectively, these nonprofit organizations meet their missions.

We provide a diagnostic and road map that can meet their funding cycles.
