Creating Commercialization Partnerships and New Venture Opportunities at the University of Central Florida

Stacey Schmidt & Tom O’Neal, University of Central Florida

The University of Central Florida is developing and implementing an array of programs and partnerships to support technology transfer and campus entrepreneurship. In this session we describe the growing
relationships between the Office of Research & Commercialization, the UCF Technology Incubator, the College of Business Administration, and the College of Engineering. These relationships have formed an umbrella network that supports the implementation of entrepreneurship initiatives and accelerates the commercialization of intellectual property and technologies developed at the university. Participants will learn about the structure of this network, the current status of UCF’s multidisciplinary entrepreneurship programs, and the creation of a new Venture Lab at the university to foster a culture of entrepreneurship and support the pre-incubation of promising research technologies.
