Technology Commercialization

Technology Commercialization

We advance the university’s research to impact lives by translating Ohio State innovations into business opportunities in the global marketplace. The technology commercialization team is the first resource for inventors at the university. We engage with faculty and staff to help evaluate, protect and ultimately find the right market for intellectual property—through licensing or creating a startup company.
