How do I get involved, what do I do, what's this all about
1139_ 1/9/2012 - The CU Tech Transfer Office has a tremendous reputation in the business arena and over the past number of years TTO has overcome obstacles in a difficult economic environment and made great achievements... CU Tech Transfer ranks in the top five for all universities in the country. We are with David Allen, Associate Vice President of Tech Transfer to learn about an exciting event that's coming up. Dave said, "People come to us all the time, 'how do I get involved, what do I do, what's this all about? This event provides an opportunity to get that. I don't know of many universities that offer this help. It's the one-stop-shop for us. I'd love to see all the people there, it'll be an engaging session." Dave explains the idea is that what TTO does is something that is not common. The people that we work with are obviously very experienced. But, there are a lot of people who want to understand more about Tech Transfer. As it is, people must learn this by experience. Dave uses the black box analogy. There's input - dollars, people, inventions going into the box and out the other side comes licenses and companies and development programs. What happens in there, often, is not very transparent. "Basically what we're doing is taking that box and opening it up. Let people that are broadly part of the business community understand the forces at play that hinge on the technology that comes from the university and how it goes through the process and what it looks like. Who's involved, what are the policies... out of that comes a much better understanding about us. Dave worked with Paul Nelson, a clean tech serial entrepreneur to develop an agenda. The program is three hours and will be held on the 24th of January. Look for the agenda on the Tech Transfer web site/Events. People attending will typically be business people involved in this community. And a lot of people are looking at this as an opportunity to create a company - to learn how does that all work and match up. So who should attend? Someone who may be interested in this field in general or through the Boulder Innovation Center, CU Cleantech, the Deming Entrepreneurship Center and places like that...there's more...
