Qi3 offers hands-on business development support and technology market evaluation for technology companies; and fully comprehensive analysis and advice to companies seeking to improve their performance. We enjoy the buzz of working with New Technology Enterprises with novel technologies, from “virtual companies” with no full-time staff to companies with 50 and over. We also get a kick out of helping divisions of diversified Technology Corporations grow in to new application and technological markets through the development of strategic alliances and supply chain partnerships.
The new Qi3 Accelerator programme provides risk investment, supporting companies to rapidly commercialise their products. We offer funds and commercial management support to businesses in the environmental sustainability, instrumentation and security domains in two modes: “Accelerate to Market” for companies seeking rapid market entry and “Accelerate to Growth” for companies with potential for rapid revenue growth. Qi3 has allocated a significant fund to support a limited number of projects, to ensure that ideas are commercialised to their full potential.
