Start up a Company

Because of the complexity and unique work involved with forming a startup company, inventors should contact IRTTO as soon as possible to discuss new inventions.

The formation of a new company can be an effective strategy for translating your discovery into a new product or service that provides a broad benefit for those it is intended to serve. Startups also generate wealth for inventors, Fred Hutch and partners, and can even grow to become a major employer that creates jobs for the local community.

Inventors can play an active role in any new company formed around Fred Hutch technology. IRTTO supports its faculty with access to resources and services including business plan development, market analysis, partner evaluation, communications with investors and more.
