Tekcapital Plc and the Universidad Tecnológica de Querétaro

to present a webinar to create value from university IP


Tekcapital plc (AIM: TEK), the UK intellectual property (IP) investment group focused on creating marketplace value from university technology, announces that it will be delivering a webinar on commercialising university IP with the Creativity and Innovation Center 4.0 of the Universidad Tecnológica de Querétaro on December 14th, 2018 at 1:00 PM CST. 


The CIC 4.0 is part of a wider platform that will promote UTEQ's participation in Industry 4.0, in collaboration with the United States-Mexico Foundation for Science (FUMEC). The center also aims at strengthening the capabilities, growth, competitiveness and innovation development of the local and regional manufacturing industry and has ties to strong industry players such as SIEMENS, IBM, and INTEL.


The webinar will discuss the unmined opportunities of IP developed from university research and how universities and companies can identify, assess and license university discoveries with a VC mindset. Strategies and tools on how to evaluate the market potential of early-stage innovations and select the most promising university IP candidates for commercialization will be addressed. The webinar will be presented from Tekcapital's Miami office and projected to a live audience at CIC's auditorium in Queretaro, México. There will also be an option for participants to join remotely. A Q&A session will be open to all live and remote participants at the end of the webinar. To learn more or to register for the webinar, please go to:  https://zoom.us/j/179889843


Commenting on the program, Dr Mireya McKee, Tekcapital's Business Development Manager, said; "We are excited to partner with the Universidad Tecnológica de Querétaro in Mexico, to deliver this webinar. This activity builds on our initial training program delivered in Chile last year. We are also in discussions for similar types programs in Brazil, the largest market in Latin America."
