Years of genetic modification and insufficient government regulation have caused the nutritional landscape of America to suffer. A land that once thrived on high quality produce and a pervasive agrarian culture is now subject to food that is unhealthy, and in many cases unclean.

Manufacturing is heading in a new direction, one that will restructure the way the world currently creates most of its products. That direction is additive manufacturing, namely three-dimensional printing. It is a body of technology so tremendously impactful on human capabilities that it evokes the legend of Icarus.
Self-driving cars which were once only murmurs in Silicon Valley less than a decade ago have hit the street. This month Uber’s first self-driving fleet arrived in Pittsburgh, but they will still be supervised by humans in the driver’s seat. Advancements in automated systems and AI are quickly giving way to a new reality: that driverless cars will provide a safer, more efficient method of travel.
We utilize many tools in our knowledge transfer activities, to understand the opportunity, technology landscape, prior art and market validation.
One of the key tools we use is the TekCapital’s Invention Evaluator report. This report gives the technology transfer office a very early indication of a technology’s potential for commercialization and justification to providing further resource to gather additional market evidence and network development for our license and spin out activities. It is an excellent indicator when deciding on resource allocation, initial companies in the field to approach and who else is patenting in the field. It is excellent value for money, on the go-no-go dilemma and has proved value for money in quickly establishing technologies that are likely to fail.

In addition to a growing portfolio of university IP investments, Tekcapital helps research institutions and businesses develop disruptive technologies and expand their portfolios of intellectual capital through leveraging their suite of powerful and convenient technology transfer services.
“Innovation is driving companies to look outside their interrnal R&D teams,” said Gross, who is the founder and CEO of Tekcapital, a University IP company… Capturing innovation from the crowd is now streamlined enough to become a part of any company’s survival kit.
An entrepreneur that wants to benefit from UIP [university intellectual property] would traditionally have to network with individual universities, making relationships with their technology transfer offices. But today entrepreneurs and international organizations facilitate a near frictionless system of access to that wealth of information.
Tekcapital released an app earlier this year that allows users to search for IP from their smartphones. This is a good way to get a feel for what is out there, identify technologies you may want, and get your creative wheels spinning.
