Industry

The Technology Licensing Office connects industry to the technologies developed at MIT, and we welcome companies to get to know us personally. We find it most effective to work with a company individually to identify areas of interest and to bring inventions that specifically match a company’s needs to its attention.  With 700 new invention disclosures coming into our office each year, our portfolio is constantly changing. Please contact us when a particular technology need arises.
