SFU’s Technology Licensing Office (TLO) is focused on delivering intellectual property (IP) protection and technology licensing services and support.

Our office supports faculty, graduate students and university researchers in the strategic management of the IP they generate through their inventions.

The TLO is a key part of SFU Innovates, the university’s innovation strategy, which includes SFU programs like Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection®, our flagship program for early-stage ventures, and SFU Venture Labs, our business accelerator. The office enables a streamlined pathway for SFU tech advances to get out into the world to drive innovation and change.
