Below are some of our company and researcher profiles, and we are adding more everyday. For a full list of our investment portfolio, please refer to our Annual Report. NBIF is an independent, not-for-profit corporation that makes venture capital investments in new startup companies and applied research at New Brunswick research institutions. What sets us apart from traditional capital providers is the way we do business. Instead of lending, we make investments in your company’s equity. Instead of making research grants, the funding we provide attaches certain rights to the intellectual property developed so we can help commercialize it. And the money we make? It goes back into NBIF so we can get even more research projects and companies going—over and over again.
