Research and entrepreneurship were once wholly separate realms, but today, many emerging technologies pass through a phase as a start-up company on their path from lab bench to the store, field, or hospital. The new technology lifecycle is constantly evolving, however, and highly-promising technologies often fail for commercial reasons, while poorer ones succeed in gaining market share.
Lux Research's Intelligence services help emerging technology developers, as well as their inventors, investors, and customers see and understand today's rapid shifts in the financial, competitive, and technology landscape. For technology developers, our services cover:
- Venture investments, from analysis of individual transactions to global, decade-long trends
