Exonus LLC is a scientific collaborative focusing on bridging the business gap between academia and industry, the scientific gap between industry and government, and the engineering gap between government and academia. Our early successes include but are not limited to:

• Aided Indiana University in renegotiating its intellectual property non-compete agreement required for faculty members so that innovation is not stifled by antiquated ownership structures from a former era. Faculty and students can now participate in industry ongoings while sharing ownership of IP with the University through pre-negotiated rates.
• Contributed to the design, creation, and execution of the Dimension Mill’s startup incubator and accelerator programs targeting the Indiana Economic Development Corporation’s entrepreneurship goals in the central Indiana region.
• Presented on multiple panels of varying topics for the Defense Entrepreneur’s Forum in conjunction with Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane. Topics included leveraging SBIRs/STTRs for early technology innovation, current and state of the art artificial intelligence for business and defense, as well as fueling the local defense community.

Exonus is the brainchild of a pilot project formerly associated with Warrant Technologies – a defense contractor in the NSWC Crane network. Our staff, formerly employed at Warrant Technologies, achieved success focusing on foundational research for agencies such as NASA, the Navy, and the National Science Foundation. Launching Exonus LLC outside of Warrant Technologies provided a more viable long-term business strategy focusing on the research and development of use-inspired scientific advancements necessary for next generation technologies while allowing Warrant to focus solely on its specialty for systems engineering.
