Blue Dot’s mission is to turn research in health and technology into profit-making products. The venture leverages the best technologies developed at academic and governmental research centers, and assembles management teams to build companies around these technologies. The research centers receive royalties in return for IP and future development. Blue Dot’s technological targets initially have included charging devices that harvest ambient energy and non-invasive devices that detect pathogens. It is the “Innovation Factory” for inspiring science and education.
