"Using applicable real-world examples, Don Rose and Cam Patterson elucidate the mechanics of transitioning from academic to applied research.

“Don Rose and Cam Patterson have crafted a clear, useful, thorough, readable, objective, and realistic guide to commercializing university research, especially via start-up companies. It’s a must-read for technology transfer professionals, entrepreneurial faculty members, research administrators, early-stage venture investors, and others involved in this complex but important process. Perhaps more importantly, as a 28-year practitioner of university technology transfer and commercialization, I highly recommend that university presidents, boards of trustees, and government policy makers focused on innovation-based economic development read this book.”--Mark Crowell, Vice President, Innovation and Economic Development, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, and past president, Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM)
