Overview

Scientists in the laboratory often fail to take advantage of the commercial exploitation of their research. Technology Transfer is a careful account of how to start the process of commercialization of technology, and describes in detail the difficulties, and amount of time needed, to carry the process through to a successful conclusion. This book provides a much needed step-by-step guide to the commercialization of research. It addresses three major themes: how to protect your intellectual property; how to develop it commercially via licensing and business "start up"; and how to finance and manage your new company. This book is essential reading for any research scientist whose work has commercial applications.

Some of the real gems in this book are how to write a business plan, strategies for successful negotiations and an excellent primer on financing and investment....[S]hould be mandatory reading for any entrepreneur.
