About Xinova

Our unique innovation market network helps companies drive growth with innovation by aligning global resources of talent, technology and capital with demand.


Innovation is the geopolitics of the next century. For the first time in a century, innovation supply and demand will be globally distributed in many places. Like what happened in the energy economy in the last century, the organizations that best understand and connect the global supply and demand for innovation will become the most powerful companies in the world.

Are you ready to take your innovation to the next level?

We’re working with Xinova as a strategic partner on a joint venture to build a new model for capital markets addressing some of the problems that are beyond the ability of a single sovereign or corporate balance sheet to tackle. Xinova’s deep expertise and technical capabilities has dramatically accelerated our ability to execute on this. Through Xinova we will be able to staff our development team with world-class talent and secure a CTO. Xinova served as the ultimate compliment to catalyze our execution path. We’re now in the process of developing this global platform with plans of a public launch in the near future. Our clients are eager and excited for the opportunity to supply capital and invest in previously unreachable opportunities. Xinova’s unique set of first-rate capabilities is what ultimately made us realize that a partnership not only made sense, but was a strategic imperative.
