We bring as much passion, logic and creativity to the execution of this commercial strategy as our scientist partners bring to their greatest inventions—we know how hard they've worked, many dedicated their life's work.

In some cases, licensing rather than new company formation provides a better route for our scientist partners to achieve commercial success. By completing thousands of licensing transactions with leading companies throughout the world, Origin is uniquely positioned in this area.

In today's non-profit funding environment, we understand that the success of the scientists and institutes we work with depends on their ability to develop new commercialization capabilities. These new capabilities must generate more sustainable revenues through intellectual property and require a keen understanding of the legal and regulatory landscape as well as evolving markets and competition.

On behalf of our scientist partners, institutes and portfolio companies, we negotiate a wide variety of domestic and international intellectual property-related transactions, including:

  • Inbound and outbound intellectual property licenses
  • Strategic alliance and joint venture agreements
  • Research and collaboration agreements
  • Asset transfer and spin-out licenses
  • Development agreements
  • Distribution, manufacturing and supply agreements
  • Privacy and other usage policies and agreements
