Information to investors
Inven2 wants to have a close dialogue with you as an investor and as someone who might have an interest in investing in and contributing to developing our active innovation projects. These are projects that we believe have the potential to become successful businesses
We receive 150–200 proposals for new inventions and commercialisation opportunities every year from researchers employed at the University of Oslo and the health trusts under the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority. We proceed with around 30% of the proposals as active innovation projects in close cooperation with the inventors. Some inventions are obvious candidates for licencing to established industry, while others have the potential to become companies that develope products and services that can make an impact on the community at large.
Innovation projects that we believe are best developed through business start-ups need competent investors to join, maybe it is you?
Inven2 as a shareholder
Inven2’s purpose is to bring as many ideas from research to the market as possible. Sometimes this means that the development takes place in a startup company. Inven2 often invests to get such companies started and participates in share issues throughout the development phase; sometimes we also have founder shares. For such companies that grow and where the shares can be realized at some point, Inven2’s purpose means that we sell all or parts of our shareholding to invest in the establishment of new companies.
