Building Businesses with Competitive Advantage from Commercialising Science by Powerhouse Ventures

The current fragility of government-funded research facilities shows the need to build global businesses that invest in crucial research even in times of crisis. Commercializing science through collaboration between business, investors, and university research centers will lead to better basic and applied research and will lead to globally competitive solutions.

 

Starting as an incubator at the University of Canterbury in 2006, Powerhouse Ventures has since invested in 31 science-based companies established around university research. They boast 4 successful exits and 9 investments entering later stages of their growth. Russell Yardley, the Chairman of Powerhouse Ventures, will describe what has and has not worked in their ventures and how he sees science commercialization benefitting Australia and New Zealand.
