Many universities with active Offices of Research and Innovation Commercialization or Technology Transfer Offices are working hard to find the right corporate partners but finding it difficult to find good licensing deals. The gap between industry and academia is well documented and a lot must be done to build trust based on mutual interest. Licensing to corporations is not the only path to commercialization. Spin-offs are common vehicles of commercialization in the
developed world for highly innovative and disruptive products.
Innovation Commercialization through Spin-Offs is a two-day workshop, created for researchers
by IdeaGist. Over 300 researchers have taken this training and have benefitted from a better
understanding of the commercialization process.
In this two-day workshop, participants will learn about commercialization through
entrepreneurial activities, how to start the spin-off commercialization process, best practices in
commercialization contracts for spin-offs, and how to manage the commercialization process.
This training is designed for innovation commercialization professionals, technology transfer
managers, researchers, PhD scholars and MPhil students that are planning or conducting active
IdeaGist has organized various training sessions on Innovation Commercialization in different
institutes and universities where over 300 participants have attended these training including
university innovation commercialization staff, business incubation managers, and faculty
members, and have rated five stars by all the participants that provided feedback.
It was a very productive session organized by IdeaGist, where I learned how to fill the gap between startups and industry.
The trainer Mr. Hassan Syed explained each step professionally. I know more about spin-offs, Innovation, and commercialization. A fruitful addition to my knowledge.
It was a great learning experience to know about commercialization steps, and how to enhance the capabilities of entrepreneurs in commercializing their startups.
It was a complete learning package about the steps behind the commercialization process. I would highly recommend to startups and scholars to join this training.
After attending this training, I have a clear picture of how to move my university towards commercialization.
Every topic is explained extensively, I would suggest to entrepreneurs, especially tech entrepreneurs should attend this training to have a clear road map for their startup.
As a startup, I was lacking with so much knowledge about commercialization that I have learned today. It’s totally a new version of the entrepreneurial world.
