2 of 5
The challenge for the executives of both Technology Transfer Office (TTO) and Business
Incubators (BI) is to sell their Industrial Properties (IPs), and they need to attract the attention
of investors, entrepreneurs & industrialists (SMEs or Big firms).
TTO executives are very good at IP management and Business-to-Business marketing and
sales (licensing-out & royalty negotiation), but they are not expert in Business-to-Customer
Online Marketing & Communication … and Crowdfunding is all about Communication!
Academic projects are in competition with non-Academic innovation (‘’Good idea’’-
based Business Opportunities) knocking at the door of angel investors, venture capitalists &
industrialists.
The capital is limited and there is a lot of projects and startups in competition to raise funds!
Universities’ IPs are not easy to find nor to understand how they could apply in real life (or
even in a specific industry => they need further development – therefore new fundings - to
find an application).
There is a huge unserved need of funding concerning early-stage R&D projects in the
Academia!
CrowdFunding
THE Solution to Solve the Problem of Funding Gap
3 of 5
Ex.: in France, there is 50 organisations dedicated to the commercialisation of
Universities’discoveries:
- 32 Business Incubators, NPOs of Universities supporting the development of spin-off
startups
=> Hundreds Startups in need of Seed Funding!
- 18 Technology-Transfer Offices, Public-Private-funded companies dedicated to the
commercialization of Universities’ patents.
=> Thousands Patents in need of funding for further Experimental Development!
Science & Technology scouting for investors, entrepreneurs & industrialists is difficult and
time-consuming due to the numerous organisations involved (and therefore numerous
websites)
There is 73 Universities in France, 4000 in Europe, 3263 in the USA, and 22123 in the whole
world in 205 countries.
