About AzTE

AzTE is ASU’s Exclusive Intellectual Property Management Company

Our goal is the rapid and wide dissemination of ASU discoveries and inventions to the marketplace. For this reason, AzTE was created as a separate corporate entity to act as a proxy for ASU, which substantially increases flexibility and speed in its deal-making and venturing activities.

ASU, through the activities of AzTE, is one of the top-performing U.S. universities in terms of intellectual property inputs (inventions disclosed by ASU researchers) and outputs (licensing deals and start-ups) relative to the size of the university's research enterprise.

AzTE was established in 2003 as an Arizona Limited Liability company with the ASU Foundation as its sole member.
