A series of fun lectures were offered by the Technology Licensing Office staff for MIT's 2012 Independent Activity Period (IAP). Lectures were designed to educate MIT students,
faculty, post docs and other research staff on intellectual property and / or entrepreneurial matters and all in the MIT community were welcomed to attend.
Below is a video of one of the lectures which was recorded by MIT Libraries.

This is your roadmap. In fiscal year 2011, MIT helped spin out 26 startups. Christopher Noble, inventor and entrepreneur from the MIT Technology Licensing Office, provides a practical overview.
