Commercialization Program

The Commercialization Program was created to create start-up companies that commercialize promising technologies having significant commercial potential, to the commercial sector, where they can be developed into products and services that meet identified market needs.  Specifically, it is the intent of the Commercialization Program to foster the commercialization of such technologies through technology validation, market assessment, and the creation of University start-up companies in Maryland. A “University Start-up” is a company reliant on a technology licensed from a University for commencement of its operations.
