Congratulations to our portfolio company Scailyte for being selected among the 12 finalists for the Nature Research Spinoff Prize.
The Spinoff Prize is a new Nature Research Award for early-stage university spinoff companies from around the world. The Award has been established by Nature Research in partnership with Merck to showcase and celebrate global excellence in the commercialization of research through the creation of spinoff companies. The Spinoff Prize aims to encourage and provide visibility to academic entrepreneurs and their startups. The judging panel looks for spinoffs that translate original, high-quality scientific research into products and services that address market problems and are well positioned to make a positive impact on society. The focus of this year’s award involves four categories: pharmaceuticals, agriculture, chemicals, and digital technologies. We are particularly proud that Scailyte has reached the finals of this fantastic showcase!
