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.
