Since 2003, Innovation has straddled and reported on the two sometimes disparate worlds of business and technology. The magazine brings the parties together and engages in a national dialogue. Articles are written in clear, understandable prose, without jargon, satisfying both investors who would be interested in the technological side and technologists who would be interested in the commercial and business side.
The audience is scientists and administrators at national laboratories and research institutions, investors in technology companies, entrepreneurs and public officials involved in technology commercialization.
Technology Ventures Corporation
Technology Ventures Corporation, founded by Lockheed Martin Corporation as a nonprofit charitable foundation, helps startup companies that are developing technology from the national laboratories. Additionally, TVC looks to research universities for commercialization opportunities. Their goal is to increase employment opportunities and wealth in the technology industry.
There are two groups that benefit from TVC’s efforts—entrepreneurs and investors. TVC helps entrepreneurs strengthen their business case and prepare to raise funding from equity investors. In doing so, TVC creates value for investors as well, and is considered by many investors as a high-quality source of deal flow. The company is based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
