Start(up) something new

Sometimes the best way to bring university-developed technology to market is with a new company, but transitioning from innovator to entrepreneur can be challenging. The USC Stevens Technology Commercialization team can help USC innovators understand and navigate the startup formation process.

Our team is expert at everything from negotiating license terms that facilitate new company formation to building connections with experienced managers and advisors.

How we can help

Build the right leadership team

We can identify experienced managers and advisors for your startup, helping you find the industry veterans that complement your technical vision.

Illuminate the path

USC researchers and inventors can drop in to our USC Stevens Office Hours for a one-on-one meeting with our licensing and corporate collaborations associates to talk about ways to facilitate the commercialization of their research and technologies and discuss corporate funding opportunities. Our USC Stevens Seminar Series presents expert discussions on topics like innovation, technology commercialization, start up creation, and connecting USC innovator/entrepreneurs.
