Welcome to the Technology blog for Columbus and Central Ohio!
Our mission is to create dynamic connections between individuals and companies, ultimately establishing strong coalitions that build awareness and grow our technology economy. We encourage dialogue, sharing, and learning.
Ideas and discoveries are great, but they’re better if they can be put to work in the marketplace — and generate money for those who came up with them.
Ohio State University hasn’t done as well as its peers in this area, but it hopes to turn that around with the creation of a Technology Commercialization Center.
The center, to be housed within OSU’s Fisher College of Business, will bring together faculty inventors and business experts. They’ll evaluate the ideas coming out of the university — in varied areas that include engineering and health sciences as well as business and law — and help guide them toward the marketplace.
