Research with real-world impact

AUT Ventures works closely with industry and business to take ideas beyond the university. Our team provide personalised advice and support at any stage to ensure you receive a fair return.

We work with AUT staff, students and alumni on:

  • Protecting your right to publish and carry out research
  • Protecting your intellectual property
  • Accessing commercial funding sources
  • Accessing negotiation, mediation and legal services
  • Exposure for your research through networks and events
  • Advice on choosing the right partners for applied projects
  • Avoiding common pitfalls at an early stage

Remember, ideas depreciate quickly, and the initial steps towards commercialisation are critical further down the track. If you think you have an idea with commercial potential, then contact the AUT Ventures team as soon as possible.
