A celebration of recent companies that have been born of OSU research

Sixteen startups that have licensed technology from OCCD have benefitted from OSU Research and have raised approximately $160M in new capital since July 2003.  The funds are bolstering the local economy as well as helping build research and development pipelines for the university.  In addition to creating jobs, the ventures make a wide variety of contributions to the public good, providing services for the disabled, clean energy, home dialysis, spreadsheets accuracy, safer electronics, and more.
