If You're a Researcher, You're an Inventor. Maximize Your Impact With Help From Tech Launch Arizona

Tech Launch Arizona
December 5, 2019

Did you know you can increase the impact of your work through inventorship?

By reporting the inventions that stem from your work*, you have the opportunity to:

  • Increase funding for your lab, department and college
  • Qualify for industry and federal grants, such as SBIR funds
  • Make your research more attractive for future funding

Tech Launch Arizona – the UA office dedicated to commercializing inventions stemming from research – provides fully-paid services to help you define, report and protect your inventions, be they compounds, devices, algorithms, and everything in between. We also provide assistance to help commercialize those inventions, from licensing inventions to existing companies, to strategizing and launching startups. 

*Most research contracts contain language regarding reporting inventions. TLA can help you understand your requirements.

Contact Tech Launch Arizona for a consultation or to discuss the potential for your invention.

  • Discussions are completely confidential.
  • Your ideas are protected.
  • We help you fulfill all your reporting requirements.
  • You get recognition and create impact.

Just call or email the Licensing Manager below most closely associated with your unit, or get in touch with Doug Hockstad, TLA Assistant Vice President or Rakhi Gibbons, Director of Licensing.

We look forward to hearing from you! #makeithappen
