Our Start-ups

OTTN and our member institutions provided core technology and expertise and assisted in the launch of many new technology ventures.  While the role of OTTN ranges from active participation to direct financial support and advice, to passive support, they are all technology spin-offs from our research.

Many of these start ups are still kicking despite the challenging times:
