The Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is New Zealand’s newest university, offering industry-relevant education for the changing world. Areas of study within AUT reflect emerging environments and industries, with qualifications and research focused in a range of different fields. AUT Enterprises Limited (AUTEL) is the commercialisation arm of (AUT) and works with the University’s research community to realise the full commercial potential of their ideas and technologies. The office engages with industry, investment and commercial networks to bring new technologies to market. AUTEL was established in 2005 to support the transfer of AUT’s research and technology. Our commercialisation process is designed to not only return immediate tangible financial resources from the sale of services and attraction of grants, but also to build a portfolio of intellectual property and spin-out companies with sustainable long term financial returns. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of AUT and a member of the Unicom Consortium, UCONZ (University Commercialisation Offices of New Zealand) and AUTM(international Association of University Technology Managers).
