Registration Open: Fall Tech Launch Arizona 'Made It Happen' Lunch Series

Tech Launch Arizona
July 19, 2018

Identifying important discoveries. Protecting and licensing inventions. Creating startup companies. Maximizing impact from the results of research.

How does it all happen?

Through this series of talks hosted by Tech Launch Arizona, you'll hear directly from UA inventors – faculty, researchers and staff who made it happen – about the process of creating inventions and how TLA is helping them bring them to the world through commercial pathways. Each talk in the series – formulated specifically for faculty, researchers, graduate students, post docs and staff – features new speakers, new stories, and new lessons learned.
