The New Hampshire Innovation Commercialization Center (NH-ICC), in partnership with the University of New Hampshire (UNH), is dedicated to accelerating the development of early stage high technology startups and to the commercialization of UNH intellectual capital.
Our vision is to fuel innovation and drive sustainable, rapid private sector growth in New Hampshire by selecting high potential early stage companies, locating them at our facilities at Pease Tradeport in Portsmouth, and providing them with a combination of business resources, access to potential seed capital and “hands on involvement” from the Center’s seasoned startup executives.
UNH, a premier research institution, is one of only seven land, sea and space grant universities in the country. Its world-class faculty, graduate students and staff generate over $100 million in federally supported research each year. The NH-ICC has made it a priority to create and leverage opportunities for the commercialization of these exciting technologies. In addition, companies accelerated through the programs at the NH-ICC are encouraged to leverage UNH faculty and student resources through advisory relationships and student internships.
