John ‘Grizz’ Deal, CEO, IX Power, John R. (Grizz) Deal is the CEO of IX Power LLC and IX Power, Limited. He has over twenty years of experience in technology commercialisation, tech-based startups, fast growing ventures, and product development. In addition to serving as CEO of IX Power, he is the managing director at Purple Mountain Ventures.
Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in New Mexico is the largest energy and physics laboratory on the planet. In addition to non-proliferation and other national security issues, LANL has a responsibility to assist in the transfer and commercialization of energy and science innovations to the commercial sector. LANL’s efforts in tech commercialisation, now nearly 30 years on, have produced mixed results. This is due partly to the vagaries of government funding, but is also due in a large part to a misunderstanding on the part of industry in the difference between an invention and a product, and between bench scale prototypes and manufacturable goods. Add to this conflicting and often irreconcilable differences in its dual mission, and successful technology transfer and commercialisation is difficult at best.
