Mobile apps continue to present technology transfer offices with a tremendous opportunity for new revenues, and some TTOs are taking this opportunity to the next level by creating mobile app accelerator centers. These centers focus solely on commercializing and monetizing mobile app ideas disclosed by students, faculty and staff.

Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has partnered with two very successful – yet very different – mobile app accelerators to help you tap into this new revenue opportunity while also better serving your student and faculty app developers.

Please join us as we feature Oklahoma State University’s Mobile App Center and the University of Pennsylvania’s AppItUp accelerator for an information-packed session that will compare and contrast each accelerator as well as provide best practice advice and reveal lessons learned.

Our expert presenters will discuss:

  • How and why each accelerator was established
  • Each program’s end-goal: One is service-oriented and one is committed to forming companies
  • How each accelerator is monetizing their apps and what it means to their bottom line
  • Details regarding each program’s annual app development competitions
  • The criteria each looks for in an app such as:
    • Social impact
    • Fundable
    • Scalable
    • Practicality, and more…
  • Each program’s relationship with their university’s Technology Transfer Office
  • Statistics on each accelerator’s impact on local and regional economic growth
  • Highlights of each program’s successes, failures and future plans for growth
