Flocazur, a cleantech startup, had developed a new fluid treatment technology applicable in several industries, but due to vast amount of application areas Flocazur needed support to identify the most lucrative business opportunities.
The need for IP to protect and control the technology in the market was high, not least due to strong competition in several of the potential commercialization areas.
As a cleantech startup, lacking critical skills and capabilities, Flocazur would not be able to enter the market on their own and needed to identify valuable partner(s).
