Creating Startup Universities

How is your university promoting innovation and entrepreneurship?

Expanding TTOs level of support

Utah State University
The university’s Intellectual Property (IP) Services unit within Commercial Enterprises helps USU faculty and staff manage and protect intellectual property. IP service managers work and assist USU and USURF researchers to identify, disclose, protect, and commercialize USU intellectual property. IP Services includes two IP attorneys, one registered patent agent, one paralegal and one docket manager.

University of Toledo
The “Lab-to-Launch” initiative partners UT’s technology transfer team with Rocket Ventures LLC, a pre-seed fund, to accelerate the transfer of research to the market. The team works closely with research faculty to identify and promote high-potential platform technologies and expedite the transfer of university research into commercial products and services, with particular emphasis on regional economic development.
