Victoria University of Wellington's commercialisation office

Viclink is Victoria University of Wellington’s commercialisation office. Our role is to add value to the University by helping researchers transform their discoveries into products or services that have real benefit to society.

We can help test, protect and develop an idea, optimising its chances of success, before launching it into the world where it can do the most good. Our role is to translate Victoria's research and knowledge into sustainable economic growth for the region.  

Working closely with university researchers we help to support them in commercialising their inventions, and maximising the impact from their research, and assist with securing funding and investment, and developing the partnerships with industry necessary to take these ideas forward.

We support and stimulate entrepreneurship across the university, whether it be starting a new commercial service activity, a new business, or enterprise skill development in staff and students.
