Welcome to the Technology Commercialization Office!

Dear GW Community & Potential Collaborators,

Our global community faces new and growing challenges particularly in clean energy and water, effective & affordable health care, and cybersecurity. These challenges are rapidly evolving under the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, which is creating incredible opportunities for research at the George Washington University (GW) to impact society.

Helping GW researchers seize these opportunities motivates me and our Technology Commercialization Office. Over many years I have built great relationship with GW inventors who are eager to connect with businesses and entrepreneurs to work together to address society's needs. When GW researchers learn about the needs of the business community, valuable innovations flourish.

As the list of societal problems solved by GW technology grows, the global reach of our research also expands. Increasingly we have extended our connection to collaborators and business people around the world. We work to continue to increase the impact of the innovative research at GW.

We strive to maintain a business-friendly environment for the benefit of all our partners. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss opportunities.

Best Regards,

Brian Coblitz
