The Werner Family Foundation

Making the world a better place through impactful technologies

Our Mission

Our mission is to support and advance technology transfer and commercialization in order to promote innovation and economic development. We try to identify promising early-stage technologies developed by academic researchers, scientists, and entrepreneurs from around the world. Once we have identified a certain technology, we develop a plan for commercialization by partnering with various investors, industry experts, and established companies.


We try to promote the translation of basic research into practical applications that can benefit society and drive economic growth. In order to achieve this mission, we focus on establishing close relationships with academic institutions, researchers, and industry partners, and provide them with the resources and support they need to successfully bring new technologies to market.

What We Do

Identify and Assess Promising Tech

We have a robust process for identifying promising early-stage technologies that have the potential to be commercialized. We work closely with academic institutions to identify new research with commercial potential, and using a range of criteria to assess the feasibility and potential impact of different technologies.

Provide Funding and Support

We provide funding and support to help researchers and entrepreneurs develop and commercialize new technologies. Whether in the form of providing seed funding, mentoring or coaching, or anything else, our focus is to put the pieces of the puzzle together.

Build Partnerships and Networks

We focus on building strong partnerships and networks with a range of stakeholders, including academic institutions, industry partners, entrepreneurs, and investors. These relationships would be critical for identifying new technologies, supporting their development, and bringing them to market.

Balance Commercialization and Impact

We balance our focus on commercialization with a commitment to advancing scientific knowledge and ensuring that the public benefits from the research it supports.
