Industry Partnership Opportunities
In the realm of technology transfer, we believe that partnerships go beyond mere transactions; they are about building enduring relationships. At Georgetown University, the OTC facilitates tech transfer partnerships that leverage the strengths and diversity of both academic and corporate entities. By tapping into complementary expertise, resources, and networks, these collaborations open doors to a wealth of possibilities. Our experienced staff works closely with industry representatives to showcase technologies of interest, ensuring that licensing agreements are tailored to meet specific needs effectively and efficiently. Whether through sponsored research, licensing, startup formation, or strategic alliances, our goal is to facilitate strategic relationships that support the development and commercialization of GU innovations.
