Tech Launch Arizona is dedicated to greater cohesion between the University of Arizona and the technology business community to significantly enhance the impact of UA research, intellectual property and technological innovations. To support the growing rate of early-stage technology commercialization and entrepreneurship across the University, we have a cohort of experienced executives who share their experience and insights with our faculty, leadership and students.
Commercialization Partners collaborate with TLA on a weekly basis, providing expert feedback and perspective regarding new technologies developing at the UA. Through collaborating with TLA’s Commercialization Network Manager, we maximize the alignment between each individual’s personal talents and goals, and the leadership needed to pull each unique technology into the marketplace.
Join the Commercialization Partner Team
Commercialization Partners start out as members of our network. Once they have started participating and have expressed an interest in greater engagement in TLA’s work, they are asked to submit a letter of intent and a resume, which are reviewed prior to the individual being offered a partner post.
Our cohort of Commercialization Partners is always growing and changing with our needs, so if you are interested, we appreciate your reaching out – as well as your patience – in advance as we work to find the best way for you to plug in.
