TECHNOLOGY SCOUTING

We develop structured technology scouting assignments with our clients which are process-driven and can efficiently identify, screen and evaluate new technologies from a wide range of public and private sources across Europe and Asia. Biospire has developed both local technology networks in Cambridge, Oxford (UK), Tokyo and Kyoto (Japan) and international networks utilising relationships in universities, large and small corporates, and access to regularly updated technology audits and inventory databases. We are particularly experienced in engaging with technology providers and reviewing the technical and commercial aspects of technologies on behalf of our clients.

GLOBAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

The development and launch of a new spin-out technology business can be a lengthy and complex process. Navigating through business planning , negotiating corporate structures and licensing deals, assembling the founding team, and securing investment requires a diverse and specialist range of knowledge and experience. Biospire has particular expertise through the entire process and we have a pragmatic and practical approach to these assignments, utilising our experience and networks to launch robust new technology businesses.

TECHNOLOGY EVALUATION

We are able to bring an independent, mature and experienced view to a developing early stage technology project. Introducing a combination of extensive technical knowledge with commercial experience to independently evaluate the science and development prospects of an emerging technology. 
This work involves critically reviewing the technology, existing and prospective intellectual property, research competitive landscape, and exploring opportunities for further improving the potential, robustness, and protection of the technology itself.

MARKET ASSESSMENT

We know that no matter how potentially revolutionary a new technology may be, market identification, positioning, perception, reaction, and rate of technology uptake are fundamental to the successful commercialisation of early stage technology. We don’t just rely on industry market research data. 
We collect first hand information direct from prospective customers and associated stakeholders to derive a clearer understanding of the potential and risks of commercialisation.

DEVELOPMENT OF SPIN-OUT COMPANIES

The development and launch of a new spin-out technology business can be a lengthy and complex process. Navigating through business planning , negotiating corporate structures and licensing deals, assembling the founding team, and securing investment requires a diverse and specialist range of knowledge and experience. Biospire has particular expertise through the entire process and we have a pragmatic and practical approach to these assignments, utilising our experience and networks to launch robust new technology businesses.

LICENSING WORK

Successful and effective IP licensing starts with clear presentation, and efficient identification of target licensees. We often work with our clients, bringing our experience in understanding and interpreting new technology platforms, to distil the opportunity to a brief and succinct profile for presentation to prospective licensees. We then utilise our direct and indirect networks to identify and engage potential licensees, and can then work with our clients to negotiate and close licensing deals as appropriate.
