Launching ASU Discoveries
Startups that launched based on ASU intellectual property today employ more than 250 people in the state of Arizona – and half again that many people worldwide. Startups (and sublicensees that have licensed ASU IP) have attracted more than $500 million in venture and other funding.
For the right invention and the right inventor, a startup company can be the best way to commercialize a new technology and bring it to market. AzTE offers extensive support to these companies through the Entrepreneurship and Innovation Group, a joint initiative with the ASU Office of Knowledge Enterprise Development that offers a full set of venture development services to help new companies get off the ground and grow their businesses.
Overall, more than 70 companies have been launched based on ASU discoveries. From revolutionizing the management and treatment of epilepsy to creating a family of software components used to expand CPU processing capacity in iSCSI SAN, our startups are really taking off.
