AUTM 2016: See You in San Diego, Tech Transfer

Fuentek’s Danielle McCulloch, Becky Stoughton, and I are packing our bags and heading to San Diego for this year’s national meeting of the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM®).

The annual AUTM meeting is the best place for technology transfer office (TTO) professionals to learn the latest tools and techniques for managing IP (read here about how to get the most out of the conference). It’s also a great place for universities and industry to network for R&D collaborations (read here about how to prepare for these interactions).


Tech Marketing Session Monday Morning

Wondering how to get through the gauntlet and reach the upper-level decision makers with your technology marketing? Then don’t miss the A3 session, “Regular, Clever and Tricky Marketing Tactics” in Harbor C–Level 2 at 10:45 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 15th. Danielle was invited to join this informative session on adding some outside-the-box tactics to your marketing toolbox. Moderated by Pasquale Ferrari of the University of Maryland, this session will also feature insights from Mark Maynard of the University of Michigan and Abhishek Sangal from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

Visit Fuentek in Booth 304

LA-DM-RSAs usual, Fuentek will be in the Exhibit Hall — this time in Booth 304. Two great new reasons for you to stop by the Fuentek booth this year:

  • New Infographic on TTO Operations: After the success of our award-winning Road to Tech Transfer, which so many TTOs found a useful tool for communicating with stakeholders, our leadership and communications team got to work on a new effort. This year’s infographic focus: TTO operations that make commercialization efficient and effective.
  • Filling in TTO Gaps: Fuentek has spent the past year reaching out to TTOs to find out what gaps exist between their in-house capabilities and the tasks they need to accomplish. As a result of this “active listening,” we have crafted new products and services uniquely designed to address those unmet TTO needs. Stop by the Fuentek booth to learn more about the new ways we can help take your innovations farther.

Connect with Us on AUTM Connect™

We’ll be at our Exhibit Hall booth throughout the meeting, so you can always find us there. But also consider setting up a one-on-one meeting so we can take the time to hear about your unique situation and where Fuentek can provide support to help you achieve your IP management and other strategic goals. AUTM Connect makes it easy to set up a time.

See you in San Diego!
