Where faculty ideas flourish.
We support BU faculty innovators and stimulates technology commercialization by delivering a portfolio of resources to bridge the gap between technical ideas and viable ventures. From educational workshops and course-based student consulting projects to advisory services and funding for translational research programs, we serve the needs of faculty across Boston University in realizing their vision for commercializing research.
Faculty exploring the potential business opportunity related to their research or other ideas have a wide range of SMG student resources available through course projects, the eSPRIT program and directed studies. MBA teams under faculty supervision act as consultants, exploring all aspects of the commercialization pathway, from initial IP due diligence and market feasibility studies to full-blown, investment-grade business plan development.
