Martin Kleckner, institute co-founder, business adviser and principal of La Costa Group LLC, a Carlsbad firm that consults with clients on developing medical technology ventures, described the approach as one that encompasses the deployment of a blend of charitable funds and grants with venture and corporate development capital that industry partners already have. Kleckner, who has 15 years of experience working for medical device and life sciences companies, said TNCI's partners benefit by receiving licensing fees from the commercialization of intellectual property.
The institute is now engaged in a 30-month campaign using this model to raise the $15 million during a three-phase development process.
Kleckner said the organization hopes to get the ball rolling by a major donor campaign, writing successful grants and seeking the assistance of foundations.
