Partnering to advance discoveries and innovations

The breadth, scope and excellence of research at the university make Ohio State a leading force of innovation and change – locally, nationally, and globally. At the heart of this are brilliant Ohio State faculty, staff and students who are the minds exploring cutting-edge innovation and fulfilling our land grant mission to make a positive impact on society.

The pathway to market

Our technology commercialization team is here to help researchers facilitate the translation of research and innovation into the market where it can have an impact on people and the economy. Technologies can be commercialized through at least two pathways - existing companies or startup companies. In some cases, the technology commercialization team may explore both pathways simultaneously. The choice of pathway is dependent upon a variety of factors including the intended involvement of the creator, the readiness level of the technology, the size of the problem the technology addresses and the impact the technology will have on the market.
