The Mountain West IDeA state universities and their affiliated Technology Transfer Offices provide the framework for effective communication and outreach to build entrepreneurial cultures throughout this region. Through collaboration, we have created the ASCEND solution to accelerate development of commercialization activities and to increase SBIR/STTR applications and funding. This catalyst of entrepreneurial awareness will ensure commercialization-boosting programing and practices beyond the grant cycle.
