Universities are robust, thriving ecosystems of information, innovation, and technology, and they were created to support a vision for a better world. Unfortunately, even though we live in the age of information, it isn’t always easy to get universities’ technology, startups, and spin-outs seen by the right people at the right time. Technology transfer professionals spend a lot of time searching for the right corporate partners, and those partners spend valuable time discerning what’s worth review.

In the past, new technologies were developed in information “silos” – that is, a company’s own R&D team would develop a new capability or product and try to dominate the market. The company would keep their research private to stay ahead of the competition. This internal R&D process does not lend itself to the research going on in academia, where universities perform their own R&D and serve as information and technology ecosystems.
Universities usually have limited exposure to potential industry partners, and technology transfer professionals often have difficulty getting their institution’s technology in front of the right people. Without this critical link between industry and academia, valuable research isn’t being utilized to its full potential.
