Looking for Funding

Tech Transfer


Our region has a wealth of research institutions developing innovative technologies that have tremendous potential to impact business, communities, and quality of life.

CTEK is the source for an expanding series of programs and services that assist in the commercialization and accelerate the development of new business opportunities for technologies developed at university, federal and private research institutions. We work in tandem with the technology transfer office of each research institution to provide focused and complimentary offerings for faster and more efficient technology commercialization.

We leverage our core CTEK assets such as Conduit 2 Capital, our Venture Centers, and our network of scientific and business Advisors to provide:

  • Cross-industry technology assessments
  • IP Marketing services
  • Business case development
  • Start-up management team recruiting

In addition, we work in cooperation with the technology industry associations co-located in the Advance Colorado Center and other regional technology-based economic development organizations and coalitions to actively market and promote the available technologies to potential investors, licensees and commercialization partners at a wide variety of events, conferences, and other venues as well as to international trade delegations.

Later this year we will be launching our first Technology Commercialization Company to provide seed funding, commercialization services and business development resources for selected technologies with significant energy, mining, or environmental industry application.

For additional information about our CTEK Technology Transfer programs and services, contact Robin Phelps.
