“One of the ways that a research university provides a direct return on society’s investment is via technology transfer.” – Tony Frank, President of Colorado State University
Commercializing your innovation is a powerful way to amplify the impact of your work. Technology transfer augments traditional academic activities (such as publishing and presenting) and can greatly increase the impact of your work by putting it to use.

At CSU Ventures, we help you transfer the results of your academic work to activities outside the University. Whether you’re still at the idea stage or already have a patentable invention, a useful software program, or anything else of value to someone outside the University, we want to work with you.
This website is an introduction to CSU Ventures — who we are and what we do. It’s also a good place to remind yourself of key information later on. The site covers:
- How technology transfer works at CSU Ventures
- Submitting an invention
- Funding opportunities
- Agreements we use
- Our organization’s policies and people
- Our past performance and the startups we’ve helped launch.
And remember: websites are nice, but ultimately we’d love to talk with you. Contact us any time.
