Start the Licensing Process

Every year, CTV negotiates approximately 100 license agreements with companies seeking to commercialize Columbia’s patents. Typically, the value of patents is returned to the University as royalties on sales, upfront fees, maintenance fees, equity, and development milestone payments.

If you'd like to start the licensing process, please contact a CTV Technology Licensing Officer, or email techventures@columbia.eduYou can also search our technologies available for licensing. We look forward to working with you.
