Interested in commercializing technologies? Entrepreneurs and inventors can take advantage of resources that include mentorship, work space, funding, legal assistance and more. 

Our Startup Guide

INVO's Startup Guide is a roadmap for faculty or students who are thinking of starting a technology company. Founders will need to make a variety of decisions, such as whether to option or license a technology, create a non-profit or for-profit entity, or exist as a virtual or bricks-and-mortar company. In addition, they will need to find and surround themselves with talented mentors and professionals and perhaps identify a seasoned CEO to lead the team forward. This guide covers many of these types of details.
