While working through your list of ‘orphans,’ have you ever asked yourself … “why on earth did this disclosure ever get into the commercialization pipeline in the first place? What was I thinking?”

In this era of lean budgets, many TTOs are being confronted with the need to downsize their patent portfolios and prioritize their most ‘licensable’ technologies. At the front end, when receiving a new invention disclosure, the critical decision remains whether the invention should be turned back or carried forward on a path to commercialization. The difference, however, is that the equation for making that determination is changing, and the criteria getting more stringent. Employing effective assessment and triage strategies is now more important than ever, providing critical business intelligence on the best use of scarce resources and, ultimately, the best results for your office and university.

That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics has lined up Joy Goswami, MS, MBA, RTTP, licensing associate in the University of Delaware’s Office of Economic Innovation and Partnerships, for a one-of-a-kind program that will provide an objective, proven assessment tool and a proven ‘decision matrix’ that can help ensure your patent and commercialization decisions have a rock-solid foundation. 

Joy’s ‘decision matrix’ recently stirred a great deal of interest in a LinkedIn group conversation, and he’s now ready to reveal all the details in this 90-minute how-to program:
