U. of Penn Unveils the UPSTART Company Formation Program

The University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Technology Transfer introduces UPSTART, a new program aimed at developing Penn intellectual property by helping faculty form new companies based on their inventions and technological innovations.

The program, a comprehensive suite of services geared to connect entrepreneurs, investors and funding organizations with Penn researchers, combines the business-creation strengths of CTT and its New Ventures Team with the entrepreneurial interests of faculty founders and regional investors.

UPSTART representatives partner directly with University faculty and staff to complete the steps required to legally form a company, raise funds and recruit employees to manage the company. [upenn, read more]
