I2T2 Business Incubators encourage the creation of new businesses based on innovation, scientific and technological development in the areas of Biotechnology and Nanotechnology. They also assist existing businesses in launching new products.
In these Incubators you will find infrastructure for research, as well as qualified personnel in the areas of technology and business, among other key tools, that will help you go much faster from conceiving the idea to launching the product and increasing your chances for success.
We will help you determine, from a technical perspective, if there exist the processes and materials needed to develop your product and service. If they don’t exist, we will help you through the processes of development by linking you with research centers and universities. We will also advise you on the processes of scaling and prototyping.
This service is offered through a strategic alliance with the Global Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CGIE), and it covers the following basic areas: market research, finances, organization and governance for the business, which allows the incubees to set a firm base for their new business.
We will help you find funding by informing about available funds, such as: CONACYT, Economy Department-CONACYT, National Entrepreneur Fund, NAFINSA, FIRA, BANCOMEXT, FONLIN, among others. We will also help you choose the fund that best fits your needs (maturity of the project, status of your business, linkage with other organizations in the business ecosystem) and will give you feedback on your applications.
The I2T2 incubators have a networking service which will help you establish relationships with Research Centers and Universities to develop the concept of your entrepreneurial idea. Also, through an agreement with the Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI, by its abbreviation in Spanish), we will advise you in matters of Intelectual Property to protect your developments.
In addition, the location of the Incubators inside the PIIT technology park encourages networking with other businesses present in the park such as: Arris, PepsiCo–Gamesa, Sigma Alimentos, Prolec–GE, Viakable, Katcon, Metalsa, Schneider Electric, among others, which can help you join production chains. We will also put you in contact with Clusters related to the focus areas and the Center for Technological Liaison (CVT) which is a part of CAINTRA NL, also located in the PIIT.
Our incubators provide you with the necessary infrastructure to support the early stages of development of your business, which includes office areas, laboratories, and most importantly, pilot plants, which allow the development of prototypes and even support small scale production so you can make your first sales.
Nanotechnology lets us manipulate matter at the scale of atoms and molecules, creating materials with scientifically improved properties, which are in growing demand. The Nanotechnology Incubator focuses on the synthesis, production and characterization of nanoparticles, nanomaterials and nanointermediates.
Biotechnology can be described as the use of living organisms, or parts thereof, in the development and production of new products and technologies. In its first stage, the Incubator is focused on the development of bioproducts and bioprocesses for the food, agri-food and environment industries.
