Making a Better World? Talk to TLA About Your UA Software or App

Tech Launch Arizona
September 6, 2019

Dear UA Developer,

As a new academic year dawns, have you given thought to how the work you're doing might help someone else? Maybe make their job – or their life – easier or more efficient?

Whatever your focus, our job at Tech Launch Arizona is to help maximize the positive impact of your innovations.

With that in mind, please take a few minutes and consider the research you are leading/conducting.

Do you have any new software that has come out of that research or a development project that could be valuable to an outside company?

Or are you an entrepreneurial person interested in the possibilities of a startup

Do you have a mobile app targeted for Android and/or iOS?

We'd love to help.

For mobile app developers, just review and follow the UA Mobile Matters processes, which can be found here:

And for all developers, the TLA invention disclosure instructions can be found here:

While you can submit an initial invention disclosure online, I’m also happy to help guide you through the process. Just let me know via email when you’ve submitted your disclosure via the portal and I’ll get back to you to confirm receipt and start a conversation. 

Alternatively, you can download a MS Word version of the Invention Disclosure Form; just fill it out and get any additional contributor(s) signatures. Then, send a PDF of the form to and copy me – easy!

Seriously, the process is easier than it sounds, and I’m here to help you through it. Being a leader in innovation is central to the UA strategic plan, and we all have a role in making that happen. To that end, I look forward to working with you to maximize the impact of your work.
