Allied Minds (LSE: ALM) is an innovative U.S. science and technology development and commercialization company. Allied Minds forms, funds, manages and builds startups based on early-stage technology originating from U.S. universities and federally funded research institutions. We created a new business model for overcoming the early-stage development gap between basic research and commercial development. Our investors are aligned with our vision that cutting-edge invention is an attractive, yet under-developed, asset class. We review numerous ideas but only select opportunities with potential to deliver outsized returns. We create subsidiaries led by seasoned management who know how to turn academic breakthroughs into commercial products and then take them to market. We provide our subsidiaries with capital resources, from seed to self-sustainment. Our aim is to promote growth, generate jobs, foster innovation and create societal benefit.
