West Virginia Small Business Development Center assists with technology commercialization


At the WV SBDC, we will help develop your ideas and innovative new concepts so you can jumpstart a holistic commercialization strategy and complete a viable feasibility study. These initial steps will help develop your idea and provide a reference for how much startup capital you will need, in addition to identifying gaps in the marketplace. By having a trusted advisor to collaborate with throughout the technology commercialization process, you will be able to capitalize on your goals. 

The WV SBDC’s Innovation-Technology (In-Tech) program was designed to provide no-cost, one-on-one assistance to introduce inventors and technology-based entrepreneurs to key commercialization issues such as intellectual property, alternative finance, prototyping and feasibility. The WV SBDC assists with the SBIR/STTR application process, in addition to technology transfer, IP support, licensing and product development cases.
