Nature Outlook 

Spinoff Prize 2023

Academic research constantly creates and disperses seeds of scientific insight. Occasionally, these seeds land on the fertile soil of commercial interest, and a new business takes root. The innovation pathway from university laboratory to start-up company is an essential part of the dynamic. This Outlook profiles the five companies selected as Finalists for The Spinoff Prize 2023, as well as the seven that made the long-list. All 12 were recognized by the panel of judges as having extraordinary potential to develop products and technologies that will change the way we live and work.
