has completed a strategic alliance agreement with the Technological University of Queretaro (UTEQ), for the provision of Tekcapital’s services in Mexico.
The new alliance was announced at UTEQ’s Industry 4.0 event celebrating their 25th anniversary, where central issues included innovation challenges and opportunities. Tekcapital was invited to speak at numerous events to aid their acceleration of “university technology commercialization, start-up company formation and cluster development.”
Dr. Clifford Gross, Executive Chairman of Tekcapital, commented on the alliance, “We are enthusiastic about moving forward with this strategic alliance as UTEQ is a university innovation thought leader and Mexico is a rapidly growing market for Tekcapital's technology investment and commercialisation services."
The UK intellectual property investment group believes this particular partnership will flourish, in part, thanks to UTEQ’s prime location in the “high-tech zone” of Queretaro, cultivating the region’s technology and innovation scene.
UTEQ has become a firm supporter of this push, creating the Creativity and Innovation Center (CIC) 4.0 as a way to “promote industry commercialization of university technology.”
And this is where the alliance seems bound to mutually benefit the partners— Tekcapital places a strong focus on cultivating IP from university technologies.
Provost of UTEQ Jose Carlos Arrendondo also spoke on the strategic alliance, commenting, “For our ecosystem, Tekcapital represents a strategic link that will strengthen the culture of valuing the intellectual property arising from innovation, applied research and the technological development of the academia in Mexico."
