Are You Ready to Take Your Nanotech Company to Commercial Success?

Or is your nanotechnology company trapped in R&D misery?

Nanotechnology as a commercial enterprise is maturing. From its formative years in the early 2000s to now, the industry has moved from the theoretical halls of academia to commercial viability.

Many nanotech companies have experienced successful product introductions, sales expansion and exponentially profitable exits for their investment partners.

But some companies struggle to advance their products from the early R&D pilot phase into full manufacturing scale up and into the market.

Transformative Technology

Some well capitalized companies that have crossed the “finish line” to full commercialization with new novel materials and devices now have profound impact on sectors of the economy and enjoy significant returns on their hard-won research and development dollars.

The far more common scenario for emerging nanotech companies includes complex, formidable barriers to reaching the end goal of commercial success: plagued with false starts, organizational misalignment and technical setbacks.

Do these Issues Resonate with You?

  • You have invested considerable time and effort into developing novel and innovative technology, exhausting available capital. With more capital necessary, you now need an experienced executive to lead the efforts for your next round of funding.
  • Lacking focus, your R&D department falls far behind schedule to meet specific, funding-dependent milestones.
  • You recognize the need to bring in a proven business leader to energize your product development process. However, the time and bandwidth to hire someone at that level makes it improbable to execute.
  • It’s crunch time. You need to show measurable results now to keep investors motivated to stay the course. Rapid intervention is needed to avoid investor burnout, a decision to cut their losses.
  • After commercial launch the company is setting up to have a breakout year but product commercialization leadership is nonexistent in the company.

Will You Achieve First-Mover Advantage?

Nanotechnology firms have formidable impediments to achieve successful product commercialization. Though revenue potential is vast, financial barriers to entry can paralyze. The balance between technical excellence and executive skill is hard to achieve. And yet is the key to winning the global race, to achieving First-Mover Advantage.

Technical Skill No Longer Sufficient

For an organization that attempts to develop breakthrough products and technologies, what is the pathway to building an effective and viable executive team? Many nanotechnology companies are established as founder-based, R&D-centric organizations, placing their total focus and commitment into technology development.

Some of these nanotech companies will evolve, adapt and adjust their technology to fulfill development goals. But just as a products goes through their life cycle, so does a growing organization. The necessity of new skills emerges when a once academic endeavor blossoms into a fully fledged business entity. Technical skill and scientific achievement are insufficient to carry the organization to commercial success.

Boards and investors seeking to advance the company’s strategic goals, improve valuation and move closer to an exit point succeed when they look to expand the organization’s executive skill base beyond the R&D/product development silo.
