The Ateneo Innovation Center (AIC) is, first and foremost a research organization that turn research into real products and services by commercialization and training, empowering and providing the next generation of innovators and technopreneurs.
 

“Our process of innovation, research and commercialization is really simple: we look for really good ideas from ourselves in Ateneo, from our partners and from around the world (through literature) for products, services and models. We would then spend a year of research and development time to create prototypes and proof of concepts, being an open innovation center we show these to our close partners and get feedback, buy-in and investment. We work and work until something gels or vector into another direction that has more promise.”
