Office of Innovation and Economic Development
Ohio State has a breadth and depth that few universities possess. We're here to make the right connections, forming mutually-beneficial relationships that positively impact society by advancing innovation, developing talent and driving economic success.
We work closely with inventors, companies, entrepreneurs, investors and other organizations by connecting the right people and resources to fill gaps and solve complex problems. Our team helps advance the university's research to impact lives by translating Ohio State innovations into business opportunities in the global marketplace through licensing and startups. Our team also provides holistic coordination and management of company relationships with the university, serving as a central point of coordination, connecting company partners to the right people and facilities at Ohio State.
