Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities by Educating for Technology Commercialization at Johns Hopkins University
This presentation describes the growing interaction between the W.P. Carey Program in Entrepreneurship and Management at the Johns Hopkins University and the licensing and development offices of the university. Specifically, multi-disciplinary teams of undergraduate students develop commercialization plans for technologies emanating from these institutions. The student teams work with the licensing professionals of the sponsoring institutions to identify and contact potential licensees, and build valuation models. For technologies that lend themselves more to a start-up model, we describe how the university has enabled students to exercise a limited option to establish a new venture within an area incubator.
