"It’s exciting to do research, but at some point you want to make a tangible impact. Starting a company and making a device to improve the health and well-being of many people is the perfect kind of impact." Brian Otis, UW Assistant Professor in Electrical Engineering

Work with us even before you disclose an innovation

By talking and working with you months or even years before you disclose an innovation, we aim to help you maximize the impact of your work, without compromising your research goals.

If it’s your first time working with us, the first step is to submit a Consultation Request so that we can match you with a Technology Manager knowledgeable about your area of research. Our Technology Managers have PhDs and extensive experience in a broad range of high-demand technical areas.
