INDUSTRY PARTNERS AND INVESTORS
The Office of Commercialization's (OC) goal is to facilitate the efficient transfer of technology, proprietary information and inventions from WSU laboratories into the marketplace.
Private sector partners can search our technologies to create and grow companies based on discoveries, and find information to learn about this process.
The OC has assisted in the creation of many start-up companies based on innovations made by WSU researchers and faculty. These start-up businesses span industry sectors in agriculture, health, veterinary science and engineering. Many emerging companies were incubated in the WSU Research and Technology Park near campus.
We welcome strategic investment in existing and new start-up companies. Our knowledgeable staff will work with you to identify relevant opportunities and connect you with the entrepreneurs and researchers involved. The OC is here to assist you in connecting with researchers whose work is of interest to you and may be reaching the stage where investment could bring the innovation to a stage where commercialization is possible.
