Technology Commercialization Funds

Innovation is the key to global competitiveness in today's technology-driven economy.  Economic Innovation has pioneered the creation of more than a dozen institutions with assets in excess of $1 billion.  These technology commercialization institutions bring the private sector, private and public universities, and state governments into powerful partnerships to focus scarce financial, human, and technology resources on commercializable innovation.  These funds create competitive products for global markets, and high quality jobs and wealth for local citizens.  Over the years, these technology commercialization funds have successfully invested in every conceivable renewable resource, including solar and wind power, methane gas and thermal energy, co-generation, and techniques for converting traditional power sources into clean energy and sustainable development.  The State Science and Technology Association Industry (SSTI)  represents the professionals involved in technology-based economic development.
