TRL+ is the first initiative to help universities, convert their research projects in sustainable and scalable companies
What do we do
TRL+ is an initiative committed to highlighting research projects in order to turn them into commercially and economically viable triple-impact spin-offs.
We work in the cogeneration of Technology-Based Companies (TBC’s) originating in the projects of the Universities Research Centers, thanks to the union of professional business teams and researchers.
Our value proposition covers the uncertainty about how to formalize the business structure, overcome the fears and the lack of capacity for self-generation of the company, that usually exists in the research groups and marks the milestones of the development plan, as well as that of its early viability.
Among other activities, we take care of:
- Analysis of the viability and commercial potential of each project
- Formulation of the business plan
- Formation of suitable teams
- Constitution, development and management of the Spinoffs
- Access to financing sources, design of founding rounds and the ideal type of investors
- Management of capital outflows
“The best researchers are rarely good entrepreneurs.“
