Our Technologies and Spin-out Companies

Innovus supports Stellenbosch University’s researchers, students and staff members who wish to commercialise their research output or inventions. This is done by licensing intellectual property rights to an industry partner, or by the formation of a spin-out company. All the technologies listed below are available for Innovus Instant Access Licensing, which fast-tracks the licensing process considerably.

Innovus commercialises and assists with the further development of technologies which meet specific industry needs. Numerous research outputs from Innovus have been developed into fully-fledged spin-out companies, which have benefited from our unique suite of services, including incubator facilities, access to business mentors, limited seed funding and legal advice, among others.
