Innovation Readiness

We are bringing together the broader community, to stimulate the collective impact that UW students and researchers are making in the world.

Our goal is to provide the mentoring and resources that UW innovators need at a granularity that blends into the pace of their work.

Technology Entrepreneurship

With partners across the UW and throughout Seattle, we provide UW researchers with an excellent environment for starting new technology companies.  Our Entrepreneurs in Residence, advisory boards, and mentors work alongside UW researchers on their startup projects, carrying them into the surrounding business community.  We help to plan and resource the development of customer relationships and product prototypes.

Technology Transfer

We are a national leader in university technology transfer. We have expertise in models for distribution, in managing software and digital assets, in IP planning and protection, and in licenses and negotiation.


Transforming ideas into engaging and targeted learning experiences; moving programs from innovation to impact by exposing students, faculty and staff to innovative thinking and the innovation ecosystem; and incubating new cross-discipline educational models.
