It is not enough to come up with a great idea or invention.

It is not enough to come up with a great idea or invention. Useful applications need to be found and commercialized, and GW Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship can help you determine what these real-life and time applications may be. We can also assist students and faculty with grant applications requiring commercialization sections, like the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and the Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) grants. Our main partner in fostering innovation at GW is the Technology Commercialization Office, through which we are able to support faculty and student research that may lead to innovative technologies. The Technology Commercialization Office handles invention disclosures, patent prosecution, and technology licensing for the university.

GW also runs the DC I-Corps Node, along with the University of Maryland and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, for training and supporting researchers in commercializing their inventions.
