First start-up emerges from “Patents2Products (P2P) Program”

The first start-up has emerged from “Patents2Products (P2P) Program” jointly operated by the University of Memphis FedEx Institute of Technology and Epicenter.

If future plans occur as planned, five more companies will be launched as part of this initiative over the next year, joining Nuvelus Inc., an innovative biotechnology company that seeks to heal and transform damaged skin caused by inflammation, disease and environmental stress.

The P2P Program hires Post-Docs as Fellows to start businesses utilizing patented intellectual property (IP) developed both in Memphis and across the U.S. The goal over the two-year Fellowship is to turn the IP into successful companies. Learn more about the initiative here.
