Penn Center for Innovation

PCI has created the first-ever guide to commercialization at Penn.

The purpose of the Commercialization Guide is to provide both comprehensive and detailed information about working with PCI on commercialization activities and covers key topics such as: Penn’s Patent Policy, creating a startup at Penn, the process for patenting intellectual property, conflicts of interest, and other important topics.

The guide is free and available in print or as a digital download. (Please note that at this time we can only deliver print copies to locations on Penn’s campus.)
