Where we have come from
The Brightstar team combines a long history of early stage technology spin-outs from corporate labs and institutions, together with many years’ experience as hands-on serial technology entrepreneurs. With strong skills in strategy, IP commercialisation, corporate finance, negotiations, structuring and legals, Brightstar brings much needed skills and experience to very early opportunities, helping them refine their propositions and develop better and more effective commercialisation strategies.
It’s a bit old-school really, but we get involved very early, get very hands-on with the innovators, build trust and work closely with them to overcome the many obstacles that early stage start-ups face getting out of the lab and into the market. As a result, we don’t have the bandwidth to work with many ventures and we remain very selective and focused on our target niches. The benefits of the model are faster to market, less risk, and more success stories – meaning that more of our incredible innovators get their life-changing ideas into the market.
Oh, and we love disruptive innovations. Did we mention that? We just love working on big, disruptive ideas!
