Creation of SPINOFF COMPANIES

Since the year 2000, ALIGO has played a role in creating over 71 Quebec-based technology companies. Of these 71 companies, 43 are still active, which equates to 61%, one of the highest percentages seen in this field. The 43 companies which are still active today have generated over $522 million in investments. The following image presents the companies in accordance with the size of their investments, both public and private.

Spinoff companies means:

  • A company incorporated for the main purpose of operating a license for a technology that Aligo is developing and which comes from an establishment that Aligo represents;
  • An already existing company that refocuses its activities around a license obtained from a technology that is valued by Aligo and that comes from an establishment that Aligo represents.

OUR SPINOFF COMPANIES

Spark Microsystems

Spark Microsystems develops ultra-low power and ultra-short latency wireless transceiver technology for applications in a vast range of sizable markets, including mobile electronics, wireless sensors, wearables, and electric vehicle.

B-Cinq

B-Cinq Technologies aims to improve performance and effeciency of vehicles by using smart systems. The innovative team is fuelled by the idea of getting beyond the limitations of multiple current technologies used in the industry. A new, patented, Electromechanical Continuously Variable Transmission (EVT) is their solution. Integrating smart control makes it possible to optimize the behavior of the vehicle in all circumstances according to the needs of the user, by using different control strategies, for example by pre-programmed driving modes.

CALOGY Solutions

Calogy Solutions is focused on solving complex industrial thermal management challenges and providing novel solutions in diverse industries including microelectronics, medical devices, and electrical transportation

Treal Technologies Inc

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are a very promising type of solar cell because of their low cost, simple and inexpensive processes and straightforward scalability.
