It’s your concept. It’s your innovation. So why choose FIS360?
Here are three good reasons

Performance.

FIS360 is a focused, energetic company with a proven and successful track record of supporting early stage technologies from concept to successful commercial product.

We can boast significant hands-on and operational expertise in many aspects of commercialising early stage technologies across diverse industry sectors, both in the UK and in international markets (Europe, North America, the Middle East and Far East).

This also include working with individuals and SMEs to multi-nationals, research organisations and investors.


Experience.

Our combined experiences and capabilities are unique, highly sought after and a comprehensive skill-set which directly complements the activities and commercial aspirations of early stage technology ventures.

Both partners have extensive operational experience with key roles at director level, as advisors, in IP commercialisation, steering committees and funding boards.

FIS360 have successfully driven the commercialisation of a range of technologies and the work of the partners has been used by UK research councils and professional technology transfer bodies as examples of best practice.

Connectivity.

Being highly connected means FIS360 are well positioned for raising profiles and reputation and enabling high level links to major world technology transfer offices and the R&D functions across leading international companies.
