What We Do

Nidus brings together entrepreneurs, Corporate Partners and seed funding to commercialize the most promising technologies with a focus on innovations in energy including renewables, storage and bioconversion.

Employing entrepreneurial and scientific talent, corporate strategic insight and seed capital, Nidus has identified a novel way to expedite the process of identifying innovative discoveries, managing development risks, and moving those technologies on the path to successful product launches.

We look for innovative ideas at research institutions, from entrepreneurs, and within corporations, and select them based on the existing or future market needs of our Corporate Partners.


Nidus Partners’ model delivers technology scouting and strategic insight to our corporate partners using a bench of experienced entrepreneurs that view those technologies as opportunities.  This synergistic relationship creates significant value for our corporate partners, entrepreneurs and financial partners.


Market Pull Strategy

Nidus selects the most promising technologies that are of interest to multiple Corporate Partners. We call this our “market pull” strategy, because they are chosen based on an existing market need.

To determine which areas of innovation best align with needs, Nidus has created the Strategic Technology Council, where entrepreneurs and Corporate Partners develop a filter to screen technologies. This Council allows leaders from seemingly disparate market sectors such as energy and plant science to discover significant overlaps in strategic needs which result in a valuable new awareness of the potential of specific innovative technologies.
