UR website connects investors, new technologies

Rochester Business Journal
April 13, 2011

A website created by the University of Rochester will allow companies and entrepreneurs to find and cash in on innovative technologies developed by scientists on campus.

The site makes it easier for investors looking for business potential to navigate the more than 400 patents the university holds for inventions in medicine, optics, computer technology and other fields. For the newly launched Entrepreneur-Ready Technologies website, university officials select the most promising technologies and present them in clear language so entrepreneurs can easily choose one that suits their needs, UR officials said.

The site, www.rochester.edu/entrepreneurship/ereadytech, which went live this week and will be officially launched April 15 at the third annual Celebration of Entrepreneurship Luncheon hosted by High Tech Rochester at the Hyatt Regency Rochester hotel.

The site presents a diverse portfolio of technologies in a variety of industries, UR officials said. One is a chemical compound that could prove to be a potent weapon against arthritis and wrinkles, another catalyst that could make fuel cell vehicles cheaper. Each technology description is accompanied by its industry applications, advantages of the technology, a brief biography of the inventor and the technology's current stage in development.

Creating and maintaining the easy-to-use repository of technology is a collaborative effort between the university's offices of technology transfer, which handles the intellectual property, the Simon Graduate School of Business and the Center for Entrepreneurship.
