About the University
BYU Technology Transfer protects and commercializes technologies invented at Brigham Young University. The office provides expertise in business relationships, negotiations, protection of intellectual property, marketing, license agreements, contracts, and entrepreneurship. The primary purpose of the Technology Transfer Office is to facilitate the transfer of university-developed technologies to the marketplace. We do this by protecting BYU intellectual property (usually through patents), and by subsequently licensing the protected intellectual properties to companies outside the university.
