University research provides a rich source of innovation. The translation of this innovation into high impact products and services can occur through licensing to established companies or by spinning a company out. With the increasing emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship on university campuses, faculty, entrepreneurs, and tech transfer offices are becoming more engaged in entrepreneurial technology commercialization.
This site considers the process of translating university research-derived innovations into useful products and services through high-growth startup companies. We offer insights, consulting, and workshops to promote this process.
We are publishing a book on the topic which covers the what and how of spinning a company out of the university. In addition, we have blog posts, run a series of Research to Revenue workshops, and offer consulting to help universities create a better entrepreneurial ecosystem and help faculty better understand the revenue potential of their research.
