    Intellectual Property Series

    University of Waterloo has long been known for researchers who are entrepreneurial thinkers and industry partners. At the core of entrepreneurship is Intellectual Property (IP) Rights Policy #73, also called "creator-owned," which grants ownership to the inventor. It's the engine for driving commercialization success of research-based innovations and may be the most entrepreneurial oriented IP policy in North America.

      We are living in times of extraordinary advancement of technology. A significant contribution to this innovation is coming from companies that were just a group of students a few years ago doing their graduate research, and now their ideas have grown to become multimillion international businesses. These successes would not have happened without access to educational resources and tremendous support. The University of Waterloo has entrepreneurship embedded in its DNA.
