The NYU Scientists Guide to Startups is intended as a quick reference tool for NYU scientists interested in starting a company based on their inventions. This guide is focused specifically on technology-based companies formed to commercialize one or more related inventions made at NYU and protected via intellectual property rights (e.g. patent or copyright) owned by NYU. If you are interested in exploring how to get your technology out of your NYU laboratory and into the market, this guide is for you.
The Guide provides a high-level overview of the startup process, intellectual property basics, working with OIL, startup licensing and the growing NYU ecosystem and resources available to support technology commercialization and startup formation.
