Also, we’ve put together a presentation that walks through the chapters of the book (here). The initial reviews have been good:

Startups are not new to university technology transfer professionals, but there is more and more focus on entrepreneurship, innovation, and startups in academia. The continued pressure to launch and support university startups has created complexities and support programs that, at some levels, become overwhelming to first time entrepreneurs and seasoned executives alike. This book not only defines a general format through which startups are pushed out of the relative comfort of the university, but also creates a guide to help avoid common pitfalls in spinning out companies. Research to Revenue is everything a startup support team needs to know and it is very helpful in understanding most aspects of assisting new business formation.–Jack Miner, Director, New Ventures, U of Michigan
Don Rose and Cam Patterson have crafted a clear, useful, thorough, readable, objective, and realistic guide to commercializing university research, especially via start-up companies.  It’s a must-read for technology transfer professionals, entrepreneurial faculty members, research administrators, early-stage venture investors, and others involved in this complex but important process.  Perhaps more importantly, as a 28-year practitioner of university technology transfer and commercialization, I highly recommend that university presidents, boards of trustees, and government policy makers focused on innovation-based economic development read this book.–Mark Crowell, Vice President, Innovation and Economic Development, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, and past president, Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM)
Here’s a blog post/interview about the book posted by University Industry Innovation Network.
