Office of Innovation Commercialization
The Office of Innovation Commercialization (OIC) was created in 2017 to promote an entrepreneurial culture on the New Mexico Tech (NMT) campus, focusing on commercializing technology created and developed at NMT. OIC receives invention disclosures from NMT faculty, staff, and students and evaluates these disclosures based on their commercial potential. We work closely with NMT faculty, staff, and student inventors to understand and assess the potential of their intellectual property to either license their innovations to industry partners or develop their IP into a startup venture.
Our mission is to foster entrepreneurship and innovation throughout the NMT campus via the university’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Entrepreneurship, and Mathematics (STE²M) initiative.
