Kentucky Commercialization Ventures supports all of Kentucky’s 22 regional universities and community and technical colleges through education, research, commercialization and workforce development. By providing statewide support to faculty, staff, and students who want to accelerate their groundbreaking innovations to the marketplace, KCV is opening doors to opportunities not previously available in the traditional siloed tech transfer approach.

Kentucky Commercialization Ventures is a new public-private initiative that’s been recognized across the nation for its innovative approach to increasing access and participation in innovation. The Kentucky Science and Technology Corporation collaborates with the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development, Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education, University of Kentucky, and University of Louisville to promote regional innovation hubs and move inventions through the commercialization pipeline. KCV was recently recognized with a Lab-to-Market Inclusive Innovation Ecosystems award from the U.S. Small Business Administration for its visionary work to improve access to commercialization and innovation pathways statewide.

It’s a unique and successful model every university and innovation stakeholder can learn from, and that’s why Tech Transfer Central has scheduled this distance learning event:
