WHAT WE DO
Since 2003, NBIF has been a launchpad for some of the region’s most exciting, innovative companies. With over $100 million invested, plus $457 million more leveraged from other sources, we’ve helped create over 113 companies, fund 494 applied research projects, and recruit 75 professors to the province.
Our portfolio companies and researchers span a huge range of industries, including advanced manufacturing, life sciences, and environmental technologies that help us build a cleaner, greener society. As an independent, non-profit corporation, all of our investment returns go back into the Foundation to be re-invested in other start-ups and research initiatives.
We’re optimistic realists – grounded in reality and returns on investment, but with an unwavering belief in New Brunswick potential. We’re passionate cheerleaders of our little province that can, and we believe greatness can come from anywhere – especially here. We make it happen by delivering the resources and expertise needed to achieve new opportunities, growth, and advancements in New Brunswick.
