Technology Transfer Project

Kauffman Innovation Network iBridgeSM is a program of the Kauffman Innovation Network launched by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The iBridge Network was designed as an online technology transfer platform to more effectively disseminate and license the outputs of early-stage research by linking university researchers with broader academic and end-user communities. The initiative was in need of client-based strategy for each of the various stakeholders involved.

Internaut Consulting was retained to develop strategies and tactics to identify and address all project stakeholders including the ‘buyer’, ‘seller’ and technology transfer administrator. Breaking out the different stakeholders and addressing strategies for each of them had not been done previously. The final recommendations covered multiple sectors and support opportunities for each of these stakeholders.
