We find and launch deep technologies.

Technium is designed as a proprietary open platform to help entrepreneurs and executives discover, validate, and launch deep technologies, every day. It's the place to find technology solutions for the World’s biggest and smallest problems by aggregating and ranking the best technology and people.

We started Technium because we saw the massive waste that was the billions in R&D sitting on shelves inside universities, medical centers, and corporations. We knew if we made it simple and fast, more executives and entrepreneurs would pull those innovations off the shelf and start solving problems with them.

Discover.

Technium works with serial entrepreneurs and corporate executives to discover and identify new technologies through our Challenges Platform to solve a problem they're passionate about.

Our algorithms help aggregate and rank the best technologies and inventors. We give you the needle, not the haystack. In addition to our software, our scout program gives you proprietary data on technologies.

01

Validate.

Once we've identified the technology of interest, we partner with the entrepreneur to validate the technology and the opportunity. We vet the technology through our network of thousands of domain experts. This expansive network allows us to work in multiple sectors in parallel. We vet the opportunity through primary market research with key customers. Lastly, we engage in technical validation research to hit key milestones while beginning to engage with new operating and strategic partners.

02

Launch.

After the validation phase, we prepare the technology for spinout as a venture-backed startup. We make the licensing experience fast and startup-friendly.

The entrepreneurs now have freedom to operate with a new breakthrough technology that they can bring to market and begin integration with customers.

Technium can bring in additional strategic partners, licensees, and inventors.

Our Philosophy

We believe this is an incredible moment for innovation, but a moment in time when we need entrepreneurs more than ever. Previously unthinkable opportunities to reinvent complex, established industries are now possible.

The fact is, going it alone, we believe, is simply not the way to go at all. Collaboration is the essential new secret sauce for industries leaders alike. For true disruption to take hold, old and new must work together, playing to each others' strengths.
