Ventures@UI for the Business Community and Alumni
New Ventures based on University Discoveries
The University of Iowa Research Foundation manages the university's intellectual property. UIRF works with inventors (faculty, researchers, staff, and physicians) to protect UI based discoveries through patents, and copyrights. UIRF also licenses these technologies to existing companies and to university spinout ventures.
The Ventures@UI program assists university inventors in creating new ventures based on their research. The program provides education, and mentoring, to advance entrepreneurs and emerging growth companies by linking them with the capital, talent, and other critical resources needed for success.
Where You Can Help!
A key to the success of our ventures is finding advisors, mentors, and interim or permanent senior management (CxOs) with business and industry experience.
