Kirchner IP Commercialization

Kirchner Group is working to develop a novel academic – industry initiative to increase funding for research and commercialization of technology. Kirchner Group believes that bringing industry-oriented scientific acumen, professional management, and relevant experience to outstanding intellectual property will accelerate the maturation of start-ups into commercially successful companies. We have a team that includes successful SBIR applicants, deep ag-tech and biotech knowledge, corporate financing experience and unprecedented insights into industry needs. We propose that a management strategy centered on our leadership has significant advantages relative to most SBIR applicants. There are several approaches that are bring considered. More information on this initiative will be available soon. Please direct all inquiries to
