Let the inventions grow!

About us

From lab to market

We are here to help inventions grow.

We are your new team member, leading your journey from groundbreaking invention to market-storming product.

We are i&i Prague, a biotech hub located right in the centre of Europe, and our objective is to identify the potential of, and nurture, new inventions in MedTech, Biotech, Diagnostics and Drug Discovery by Central European scientists and researchers. We do this by sourcing or, in some cases, providing financial investment for your invention, then we will help you with product development and, ultimately, market entry.

Our background

We operate as a private company under the wings of the Czech Academy of Sciences and its Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry (IOCB). From 1994 to 2002, the IOCB was led by Dr. Antonín Holý, whose team  (Truvada, Atripla, Complera, Eviplera), invented and developed hugely effective and successful anti-HIV drugs. We believe that this is a legacy to build upon and that, with yours and our combined expertise, we can make this world a better place and help millions of people.
