This publication articulates a new approach for transferring university technology to the marketplace, providing a model that merges the need of universities to commercialize their innovations with small-cap companies seeking new technologies to grow their business. The model is characterized by equity-based performance compensation, as opposed to royalty sharing. The book is targeted to entrepreneurial professionals, and university professors and inventors. The New Idea Factory also contains information readers can use to locate sources of funded innovation at government laboratories along with listings of research expenditures and the resulting technology transfer efforts produced by leading U.S. universities.
