Athroa Innovations offers to innovators the prospect of IP Licensing as an alternative to launching a start-up. We enable inventors in any capacity and from any origin to focus on making progress on their core research progress, while benefiting from the competitive advantages of doing their prototyping in Greece with us. Both local and international industrial pioneers choose to join our co-development projects to access cutting-edge innovation critical to them, but without the upfront exposure to the high risk and disadvantages of early-stage inhouse R&D. While our priority is breakthroughs involving also hardware, we investigate any type of innovation, not only high-tech, as long as it lends itself to IP Licensing, could potentially become disruptive, and promises a positive overall financial & social impact.
