Business Information Basic COMPANY INFORMATION, such as address, telephone number, and company officials, and key financial data like 10-K reports.

Valuable Opportunities Triumphs and Trials in Tech Transfer As tech transfer offices sprouted, they became increasingly valuable to their home universities. In some cases, the benefit to the university was completely financial, such as the gene insertion patents that have made more than $300 million for Columbia University. That money can be funneled back into research, or into startup packages to lure prestigious recruits to the institution. At Wisconsin, we have this billion-dollar endowment that has been generated entirely out of patents, says Handelsman. The quality of life in science at UW is a lot better than at a lot of universities [because of that]. A number of her students, for instance, have been supported by fellowships offered through Wisconsins tech transfer arm.
