Value Creation

Building Great New Businesses through Value Creation

Value creation is a one of Brightlands’ most essential competences. Brightlands Chemelot Campus has a team of business developers to support entrepreneurs as they start new businesses based on proprietary or third-party intellectual property. Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus offers a wide range of services that support the growth ambitions of our tenant companies and the people who work here.

Maastricht Valorisation Center

The Maastricht Valorisation Center (MVC) is the knowledge center dedicated to creating value for Brightlands, Maastricht University, and Maastricht University Medical Center+. It supports researchers, students, and companies in turning scientific and technological knowledge into new businesses.

MVC scouts, screens, and prioritizes promising technologies in research and educational institutes and the business world. It also patents discoveries and manages the patent portfolio, develops business models, cases, and plans, takes care of licensing, and launches and spins out technologies as new companies. In its business development role, MVC negotiates with potential partners and financiers, installs management teams, and provides the necessary legal and administrative support.

Examples of companies created in a valorization process include ACS Biomarker, FABPulous, Vision2Health, GlycoCheck, Xair Diagnostics, and Psymate.
