What We Do
GCG’s unique approach to economic development through technology commercialization

Our Results
Programs result in business deals, trained entrepreneurs, and managers ready to carry on commercialization activities.

UT Student Intern Program
GCG runs a student intern program for graduate students in various disciplines at UT-Austin, benefiting both students and programs.

The Global Commercialization Group facilitates the growth and development of innovative technology-based businesses in a variety of regions worldwide. GCG programs simultaneously provide commercialization know-how to local partner organizations while proactively moving science and innovation from the region into international markets.

This dual approach to economic development results in sustainable wealth-creating systems with measurable results in international business.  Within a year or less, a GCG program will deliver international transactions for new businesses and trained managers to carry on the business of moving technologies to the marketplace.  When a GCG programs is extended for multiple years, the region benefits even more from a build-up of a network of entrepreneurs and tech transfer professionals and organizations.

Since 2001, GCG has created and delivered a multitude of programs in eighteen different countries.  Program design is informed by thirty-seven years of research and methodology development at The University of Texas at Austin’s IC² Institute.  GCG continues to look for new opportunities to implement this knowledge and create positive economic results around the world.
