LinkedIn is the social medial channel for TTOs. For tech transfer professionals, it’s a must-use business tool that, when utilized to its maximum potential, will harvest valuable business connections with potential partners, investors, licensees, colleagues, and more.

But to realize that potential involves much more than just hitting the “connect” button. While many TTOs rely on LinkedIn as a part of their marketing and communication plans, very few actually have studied and learned how to optimize its impact and reach – and results. That’s where this two-part webinar workshop comes in. You could spend months or even years curating a network and posting content to achieve so-so results, or you could register today for this detailed, impactful workshop series:
