Start-Up Company Program

The University of Saskatchewan Industry Liaison Office has established a Start-up Company Program to assist faculty, staff and student inventors to evaluate the feasibility of forming a start-up company and licensing their technology to that company in order to capture optimal value from the technology for the inventors, the university and the local and global economy.

A start-up is defined as a company started with the express intent of capturing value from technology invented at the University, where the University owns the IP and will have direct financial return through its commercialization.

A spin-off company is created based on technology developed by U of S stakeholders but not owned by the University. The University supports these stakeholders in the development/creation of their companies because it is a direct transfer of knowledge into the community with economic impact.
