NuAge Vision, a new company - the brainchild of Drs Pete Hotten and Nick Pay, was created to energize open innovation in the life science and biotechnology sectors. The essence of our business model is to: Advise, Conceive, Agree, Formulate and “Do” what is necessary to meet the clients’ objectives. NuAge Vision helps bring to market technologies developed in all technology led sectors but with a particular focus in Biological & Life Sciences. With impressive track records, the NuAge Vision principals are highly skilled in identifying winners and accessing the essential partners to deliver the technology to the marketplace. The concept is straightforward - with our level of experience and our skill set we are able to offer:

Assessments of the technology potential, competition and market
Technology scouting
Development of commercialization models and value added IP strategies and IP road-mapping
Guidance during the funding process including introductions to potential sources of funds
Mediation with key specialist advisors
Project Management
Insight and leads to international / European markets
Deal making

Our idea is to help from initial idea to commercially products - from start-ups: by offering our experience (the pioneering process) , to assisting those searching (seeking) for new technologies by scouring the technology landscape and bring interesting companies to the their attention, through to providing value added services to potential investors in these fields and to align ourselves with the top technology support companies available.
