Patent licensing negotiations have an extremely high fail rate - this can be down to unfavourable licensing terms or weak patent portfolios. One of the ways universities and industry are trying to bridge the gap between innovation and commercialisation is by working together much earlier.  

From a university standpoint, their research can be tailored to specific industry needs, as well as having research costs covered. Through the eyes of industry, they can get their hands on the latest research developments, and attract the brightest and talented individuals to their businesses. 

Laura Schoppe, President and Founder of Fuentek, who has years experience helping TTO's improve their chances of commercialisation joined us to discuss: 
  • How to start sourcing strategic sponsorship deals
  • Where to begin with searching and conversations for partnerships 
  • The benefits of this chosen pathway. i.e minimising risk
