Our Story

Innovators. Dreamers.

OniX’s purpose is to fill the knowledge gap in the landscape of global research ideas that stifles innovation. OniX believes that the flow of ideas from discovery to market is dispersed; therefore, access to ideas is neither global nor open. The OniX platform serves as the hub where global ideas can be shared in a more open and safe ecosystem. The goal is to advance ideas faster to facilitate their translation and development to market to have a positive impact in our communities.
Thriving innovation ecosystems are known for having a unique sense of place, a robust talent pipeline, and access to capital. What threads these three pillars of innovation together is partnerships – large and small, formal and informal.  OniX blends online and offline communities to provide meaningful partnership opportunities for university faculty, researchers, startups, investors, foundations, and large local and multinational corporations to spur innovation.

Online Ideas Exchange Hub

Connecting Ideas to Opportunities

The Online Ideas Exchange Hub (OniX) builds partnerships and accelerates the path of ideas from  discovery to market. OniX aggregates public and not-public data from universities, incubators, accelerators, research parks startups and biotechnology companies, and industry to (1) de-risk and accelerate R&D, (2) identify new targets and new potential uses for existing drug candidates, (3) identify Business Development opportunities (earlier than current venues), (4) facilitate External Innovation Partnering, and (5) provide access to KOLs.
