Washington University Startups

Start-ups raise exciting issues such as potential growth and equity ownership. They also raise important issues regarding conflict of interests and conflict of commitment.

Information for Startups

If you are considering forming a company to develop an invention that has been discovered at the university, please email OTM so we can discuss your ideas and help you make better decisions regarding such issues as capital and marketing. While most of our technology is transferred to the public domain through large, established companies, start-ups often provide the very best means to accomplish this objective.

You can learn more about starting a business and connect with other people by going to Olin Cup and Entrepreneurship on the Skandalaris Center for Interdisciplinary Innovation and Entrepreneurship website. Additionally, there are numerous other entrepreneurship activities in St. Louis and many can be found by contacting the St. Louis Regional Chamber & Growth Association (RCGA).
