Partners for Innovation, Ventures, Outreach & Technology (PIVOT) Announcement

The University of Utah is pleased to announce the formation of “Partners for Innovation, Ventures, Outreach & Technology (PIVOT) Center,” a centralized office that will lead innovation and economic engagement at the University of Utah. PIVOT will build on the work of the Center for Technology & Venture Commercialization (TVC) to serve as a hub for fostering partnerships between industry, university, and government entities. Operations previously led by TVC will continue to assist faculty inventors in bringing their innovations to market through invention management, patent prosecution, licensing, startup formation and support, equity management, and early-stage funding. PIVOT will leverage these existing resources to oversee economic development and corporate engagement, and elicit feedback from stakeholders to improve the U’s ability to serve as a catalyst for building partnerships among researchers, industry, and government.
