Got a better idea?  Talk to Us!

For an inventor, getting an idea from the drawing board to the market can be a daunting task.  The Wyoming Technology Transfer and Research Products Center (RPC) was established to simplify this process.  The staff at the RPC can assist Wyoming inventors in technology transfer, the process of protecting, of marketing and of licensing innovations.  Any one of these tasks can be intimidating to undertake as an inventor, but the RPC staff has the resources and skills to help inventors in all aspects of getting their ideas to the market.
