Tioga Research formally commenced operations in February 2011. The history of Tioga Research, though, dates to July 2002, when the predecessor company fqubed, Inc. ("fqubed") was formed. fqubed was acquired by Toronto-based Nuvo Research, Inc. ("Nuvo") in December 2005. Continuing operations as fqubed, Inc. until a formal name change to Nuvo Research US in 2010, fqubed was the research & development division of Nuvo until January 2011. Under a management buyout, Tioga Research was then created as a 'spin-out' in February 2011.
