The Research to Revenue Workshop is designed to help faculty and students learn the practical aspects starting a company based on university reasearch. Over the course of this two-day workshop, experienced entrepreneurs will mentor attendees on how to evaluate the commercial potential of their technology, define the first steps in starting a company and assemble a startup roadmap for taking the next steps in launching the company.

Event Details:

August 4-5 at RTP Headquarters (12 Davis Dr., Research Triangle Park, NC 27709) [parking available]


The workshop is open to faculty, staff, and students from any triangle or regional university.  It is intended for early-stage University technologies for which the application is unclear.  Please submit information about the technology when registering to John Sheridan (jtsherid@email.unc.edu).  This information will help us customize content and select appropriate coaches.  However, please do not submit proprietary information.  If you have any questions about what constitutes proprietary information please contact us.  If you are not submitting information on a technology you may still attend the workshop.  However, we will not be able to connect you with a mentor.


Throughout the course of the workshop, we will inform you on the basics of taking a technology outside the university setting, help evaluate commercial potential, identify special considerations relating to faculty entrepreneurs, review the practical steps towards starting a company, discuss the types of communication involved in venture creation and with the help of experienced coaches, develop an action plan moving forward.


Due to event expenses, this workshop is offered at a cost of $150 for faculty and $75 for students.  Breakfast and lunch are included.  Vegetarian options are available.  However, if you have any food allergies or other dietary restrictions please let us know.

If you have any questions please contact John Sheridan (jtsherid@email.unc.edu)


Please note, that if you register on or after July 27th, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to connect you with a coach for the one-on-one mentoring session.
