This infographic illustrates a general path
Purdue researchers could take, not necessarily the path that everyone will take. In fact,
research and commercialization are parallel and interdependent paths that inevitably
involve many iterations and pivots, and a simpli;ed graphic doesn’t demonstrate that.
What this graphic does do, however, is translate information available from the Purdue
Research Foundation’s O;ce of Technology Commercialization and the Burton D.
Morgan Center for Entrepreneurship into a big-picture view of the entrepreneurial
process. As their policies and best practices change, we will update this infographic
accordingly. Please check back online for updates.
