WiSys is committed to advancing technology through patenting and licensing, facilitating research and development, and building collaborations. If you want to learn more about the programs we offer or have an idea for a research project, a new or improved product or technology, or a potential collaboration, please contact any WiSys team member.
One of WiSys's many resources is an entrepreneurship e-learning course available to all UW system students, faculty and staff to use individually or in a classroom setting. The tool, developed in partnership with WiSys, UW-Madison Office of Corporate Relations and Precision Information LLC, aims to educate potential entrepreneurs on fundamental issues in starting or managing a high-tech business based on proprietary technologies. The content is also designed to be valuable to those who may become employed in technology companies or become inventors on a technology patent and may consider starting a business.
In addition to a pre-entrepreneurship guide, current topics include confidentiality; intellectual property; licensing; market research; financing; commercialization; and business operations (the tool will continue to expand). This is learn at your own pace online education. To receive a login to preview or use the tool, contact Jon Cook.
