Coming up with promising ideas for new technologies and products takes a special kind of genius. Getting those technologies and products out of the lab and to the people who will use them takes quite another.
The path between the lab and the marketplace is called "commercialization," and from its centrally located suite of offices in the BRIC, LAUNCH provides entrepreneurs, businesses and industry with success-proven resources and experience to navigate that often winding and obstacle-strewn trail.
LAUNCH offers start-ups and established companies alike a broad spectrum of business formation, adaptation and augmentation services, such as international market development (through Baylor's International Entrepreneurship programs), legal and accounting services and educational programs for executives of new technology companies, and also helps match clients with appropriate financial support mechanisms, including the Baylor Angel Network, venture capital financing and assistance with Small Business Administration loan applications.
"LAUNCH brings a full-featured set of real-world business development and marketing services that is the perfect complement to the technical and scientific "genius" of the BRIC's clients and researchers", says Dr. Greg Leman, LAUNCH Director.
