Our goal at OLV is to find a partner who has the interest and ability ($ and other resources) to develop your ideas to where they can impact people. We do “market assessments” to figure out what ideas are most likely to find partners and put our resources on those ideas. Maximizing the impact of Duke ideas is the driving force behind the Licensing & Ventures operation. We look forward to working with you!
