In its academic origins at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC Barcelona Tech), Fractus emerged as a pioneer in antenna technologies, with revolutionary advancements in the field. Extensive research and development, coupled with a dedicated focus on R&D, have launched Fractus' technology to global recognition, accumulating adoption by a majority of mobile phone OEMs and network infrastructure operators. An exemplary manifestation of the advantages offered by Fractus technology is the absence of external antennas in today's mobile phones.

Nevertheless, the journey has not been without its challenges, including pivotal moments that demanded strategic decisions. Notably, the company underwent a significant transformation, shifting its business model from product-centric to a licensing approach. This transition, though demanding, reflects the resilience and adaptability required in the dynamic landscape of cutting-edge technology. As we consider the implication of Fractus' trajectory, we gain insights into the intricate interplay between academic innovation and real-world industry evolution, offering valuable lessons for PhD students navigating their own paths of research and development.
