Couette Limited was initially established in 2013 as a working group by a number of academics and alumni from Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), with an aim of bridging the gap between academia and industry and developing innovative ideas, products and services. It was later on established as a limited company in January 2015.
The company started its operation as a member of 'Innospace', which was an incubation/innovation hub launched by MMU and later on, in 2019 moved its office to Altrincham, southwest of Manchester.
The founding members of the company included Dr Moe Roohanifar, Mr Pedram Safari and Dr Amir Keshmiri, supported by a number of other researchers with expertise in business, finance and engineering.
The company has so far had a successful track-record in investing, developing and commercialising a number of different products and works closely with universities, research centres, catapults and science parks, particularly those in Greater Manchester.
