Welcome to KKI Associates
Technology commercialisation, training and mentoring, in Scotland, the UK, and further afield. In 2014 KKI celebrates 20 years in existence, over 250 assignments, and over 2500 training delegates. In the following pages you can see some of the benefits, some financial, some life changing, KKI has brought to the people it has worked with.
Want to know about the market potential of a flat MRI magnet? Want a business plan for a biotech start-up? Do you need to know the cost of capital of a heavy chemical plant? Or the future range of prices of permits under the EU carbon cap and trade scheme? Perhaps you would like to sell high quality lubricating oil to the Middle East? Talk to possibly the most experienced and versatile individual technology commercialisation consultancy in the UK.
KKI is the UK's longest established provider of training in commercial and financial skills for scientists and technologists. As a trainee, would you really like to understand the 'hands-on' essentials of business? Would you like the training experience, even in the most difficult subjects, to be the 'most fun I've had since primary school'? As a training funder, wouldn't you like to know the outcomes of a workshop, not just in terms of immediate feedback, but also the proportion who will go on to start commercial projects or spin-out companies?
KKI carries out a range of activities with young people, much of it an a 'pro bono' basis. We work with young people in a number of ways, from career mentoring to 'edutainment'. As a result, some have got/changed careers, some are starting companies, some are/will be changing the world!
