Since the year 2000, ALIGO has played a role in creating over 79 Quebec-based technology companies. Of these 79 companies, 52 are still active, which equates to 66%, one of the highest percentages seen in this field. The 52 companies which are still active today have generated over $590 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.

3D Semantix

3DSemantix has created semantics that allow one to search for similar parts using a 3D MODEL as input to the search engine, not alphanumeric characters. Their first product using this new semantics is a shape-based search engine: 3DPartFinder. 3DPartFinder will then search the database and present a 3D view of all the similar or identical parts in an assembly.

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. Leveraging the architecture of DSSCs while using materials developed at multiple Canadian universities, this project aims to develop a solar cell for the consumer and commercial markets that is affordable and robust.
