About the Book


Our book is geared to researchers who seek to amplify the impact of their work. Research discoveries can truly change the world, if they move towards products and services that reach broad markets.

We de-mystify commercialization by

  • describing various pathways available to the academic inventor, from commercial licenses to startups
  • featuring profiles of successful inventors with academic backgrounds
  • highlighting decisions and critical steps to take

Our book also challenges existing systems by

  • encouraging researchers to promote commercialization training for students
  • describing the uneven landscape for inventors of different genders and ethnicities, and offers strategies to afford every inventor the same chance of success
  • offering realistic recommendations to academic institutions for engaging their researchers in the commercialization enterprise
