The IP Spinout Model

In my last posting, I talked about a method aspiring entrepreneurs could use to find a compelling business idea. In that posting I talked about how to use the Lead User concept. Another technique is to the IP Spinout Model.

The IP Spinout Model involves finding an interesting invention developed at a university, or other research institution, and licensing the IP and its assets to form a business.

I came across a very helpful case study of the IP Spinout Model, that I'd recommend to entrepreneurs, particularly MBA students.

If the document gets removed from NetPreneur.org, you can find it again at HBS Press. The authors are Houghton, Lalande, Miller, and Redmond.
