Turning Kiwi technology ideas into commercial reality
Without the right backing, which includes commercial expertise and investment, great ideas don’t realise their commercial potential nor benefit our lives the way they could. That’s why Kiwi technology innovators value Astrolab. We’re a focused commercialisation business getting hands-on at the earliest stages, helping NZ organisations and innovators map-out and execute the path from genius idea to commercial reality.
Working together every step of the way, we give commercial life to complex technology ideas, driving the creation of viable products, services and solutions, and navigating the arising company towards success on the world stage.
Astrolab is a complex-technology incubator that operates alongside Callaghan Innovation’s range of programs advancing New Zealand’s economic growth through innovation. Astrolab provides targeted services especially for early-stage, complex technology commercialisation. Our differentiators are a focus on complex technology, an early-stage involvement to maximise a technology’s commercial options/priority, hands-on full-establishment of ventures, on-going guidance, and a proven and evolved commercialisation framework for these types of technologies.
The value of an early partnership is considerable. It brings the right focus to validation and remaining research in order to establish a likely feasible path to global viability. If there is merit, time and money follow. If not, the innovator is free to focus elsewhere.
Astrolab’s in-house professionals deliver commercially-proven strategy in: venture planning, high-tech product refinement, professional development, communication, market positioning and growth, legal and financial management. We work with a wide range of trusted partners including Simpson Grierson, Augusto, Kiwibank, Callaghan Innovation, NZTE and ATEED to deliver complete, robust commercialisation outcomes.
