The Penn State DuBois Office of Technology Transfer makes the resources of Penn State University available to those who need assistance developing a business idea. The office helps entrepreneurs connect with people across the university who have the knowledge, skills, and contacts to help them start a business, or expand an existing business. Inventors and business owners can get assistance establishing a business plan, and gain access to research and laboratory facilities where they can develop inventions or ideas. They can even get guidance on how to market their product or service once it is ready to be released to the public.
In just over two years, the Office of Technology Transfer has engaged 60 companies, and 20 individual entrepreneurs, and has aided the founding of 10 new companies.
Johnson is available to help individuals or businesses take the steps needed to advance an idea, tap Penn State research and development expertise, generate fresh ideas and solutions to real problems, and access business resources. He is located in room 102B in the DEF Building, and can be reached at 814-375-4803 or firstname.lastname@example.org
