Commercializing Technologies: The MAH Process
MAH supports a portfolio start-up companies. MAH helps these companies develop management teams, craft business plans and raise capital through equity offerings. MAH also creates exit strategies for its portfolio companies. MAH expects that one or more significant exits will occur for companies in its portfolio over the next five years. MAH intends to commercialize 2-5 pieces of intellectual property each year.
In order to guide and facilitate the commercialization of technologies and the growth of companies, MAH utilizes commercialization processes built upon best practices. These processes include assessing the economic and technical feasibility of opportunities early, reviewing the market potential early in the commercialization cycle and developing customer solutions as soon as possible during the commercialization effort.
Innovators are the key to the commercialization process of MAH. These scientists and engineers are given substantive positions either on license agreements with third-parties or in companies formed to advance the marketing of the intellectual property. The innovators can either join the start-up companies or support the new company on a contract basis.
