We empower Universities to process new technology faster and easier.
Did you know?
On a global scale less than 10%
of university applied science discoveries move to the next stage of commercial growth.
The question: why?
Universities report that their researchers, who have created world leading technology solutions, need an easier way to consider their commercial options. They need better tools to showcase their technology and to identify potential partners across the world, and they want a simpler way to show the business potential of their innovation to TTO offices.
The problem? The tools didn't exist.
We built the tools.
Nakoudu for Universities is a web-based tool for Physical Science and ICT researchers to receive online commercial skills mentoring relevant to industrial sectors, and step-by-step guidance to build a compelling business case for their discoveries.
With a clear business case established, TTO teams can move quickly to process patents, identify local partners and, when appropriate, build an international Industry Engagement profile for the discovery.
It's secure, fast, and simple, and it means we can accelerate global impact.
Researcher submits their technology application via the Nakoudu website
TTO receives application via email and can log in to view and manage their research team in a database
TTO can extract a CSV of all research data at any time via the Nakoudu admin portal
A PDF report can be generated with all tech profiles and their score
