The Nanotechnology Institute™

The Nanotechnology Institute™ (NTI) is changing the way the Greater Philadelphia Region advances new, transformative technologies.

From Discovery to Commercialization, the NTI is the region’s first partnership created to accelerate nanotechnology commercialization and company formation. In 2000, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeastern Pennsylvania (BFTP/SEP), the University of Pennsylvania, and Drexel University created the NTI to be a catalyst for nanotechnology development and commercialization.

Today, with core funding from Pennsylvania’s Ben Franklin Technology Development Authority, the NTI has grown into a comprehensive organization incorporating twelve academic research institutions centered around a common framework of Technology Development, Intellectual Property (IP) Management, Sponsored Research Agreements and new company formation. The NTI continues to innovate as it matures and evolves – the results speak for themselves. The NTI has helped produce more than 821 IP assets, facilitated 67 technology licenses, created or assisted 43 young companies, and attracted more than $2848 million in public and private investment to the region.
