Join us for a C4C Event, June 13: Navigating the Roadmap from Idea to Commercialization

compassLast year, UW researchers reported 462 innovations, filed for 409 patents, and spun out 9 companies (with 16 projected this year) based on UW research!

Moving your idea from the lab to the commercial sphere is a worthy, exciting, and daunting endeavor. Whether you’ve worked with us in the past or not, the road from idea conception to commercialization isn’t always obvious, and it’s not the same for everyone.

Join Us to Get Essential Guidance for Each Stage of the Commercialization Process
To boost your confidence in navigating the process, we’ll give you a 30,000 foot view of the commercialization roadmap, and stop at points along the way to share best practices through case studies. We’ll address important questions like: When’s it OK to publicly disclose your innovation? What criteria determines whether an invention is patentable, or should even be patented?
