How do you benefit?
Our experienced team will guide you through the process with the goal of filing the best patent and/or copyright application possible to ensure your commercial success.
Inventors and their labs receive a share of licensing revenues. Sponsored research agreements can provide additional funding going forward.
Technology transfer activities are now credited in the tenure and promotion process in some ASU departments, including the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering.
Steps to working with us
1. Invention disclosure
We have the expertise to transform scientific research and innovation into commercially viable technology. The first step of this process requires you completing and submitting a Disclosure form, providing a description of your invention.
2. Technology evaluation
Skysong Innovations’ team will evaluate your technology’s commercial viability and IP potential. Our industry experts and patent counsel may also assess your invention to provide a more robust perspective on its marketability.
Skysong Innovations staff actively contact potential licensing targets who will discuss your invention and determine their interest. The marketing and licensing process is ongoing, and may be done in stages as improvements are made.
4. IP protection
Skysong Innovations closely safeguards new technologies to provide all parties with the highest level of protection in licensing transactions. We carefully balance your academic and commercial interests with thoughtful planning and ongoing collaboration with faculty, researchers and students.
5. Technology licensing
Once Skysong Innovations finds a licensee for your invention, we negotiate, execute and manage the resulting license agreement. Negotiating a license agreement can be a lengthy process. Please be aware that not all inventions make their way to the licensing stage.
