Innosphere Ventures supporting UNM Rainforest Innovations in technology commercialization efforts
Innosphere Ventures, the Colorado-based incubator and commercialization program that accelerates business success of science and technology-based companies, has announced another research university that is now a member of the incubator’s University Partner Program. Innosphere is now working with UNM Rainforest Innovations to support the university’s economic development efforts and their vision to be an innovator in technology commercialization worldwide.
“An innovation ecosystem is only as strong as the people that make it up,” said Lisa Kuuttila, CEO and Chief Economic Development Officer at UNM Rainforest Innovations. “It’s a place where people with creative ideas, business insights, and those with the desire to facilitate change come together to nurture budding ideas into sustainable enterprises. When new partnerships are formed and collaboration is set in motion, our whole innovation ecosystem benefits.”
“UNM Rainforest Innovations has always done a great job protecting technologies developed at UNM and transferring these technologies to the marketplace,” said Mike Freeman, Innosphere Ventures CEO. “We know that moving an invention from the lab to the marketplace and forming a successful company can be daunting, so Innosphere is excited to be one of the entrepreneurial resources that UNM offers to their technical founders and university faulty. Working with New Mexico’s leading research university provides Innosphere’s commercialization program with high-quality deal flow and opportunities to work with their innovative programs.”
