Use Your AMMO for Tech Transfer Marketing: Kicking Off the “Marketing Mondays” Series

fuentek_ammo_horizontal_basicOne of the top topics at any tech transfer industry meeting is technology marketing. Just a few weeks ago, one of the most popular sessions at the AUTM™ Eastern Region Meeting was on the topic of “guerrilla marketing.” We have blogged a lot about marketing strategies and various marketing tools over the years.
