Virtual User Groups - May and June 2020

With travel restrictions in place, Wellspring has canceled our three scheduled user groups in Amsterdam, Brisbane, and Chicago. In place of physical meetings, we are launching a Virtual User Group (VUG): a series of training and educational topics targeting specific aspects and features of our technology transfer and intellectual property software.

Each VUG session will be conducted live by webinar and include demonstrations, interactive discussions and Q&A, and a product roadmap. At the conclusion of each webinar, we will provide recordings in the Customer Support Center for future review by you and your colleagues.

Below, you will find the full webinar schedule that will be updated with session details and registration links throughout the year. In addition to the spring series you see here, VUG sessions will resume in the fall with additional demonstrations, presentations, and community discussions. We look forward to connecting with you soon!

Finding Your Next Licensing Partnership

How we work has changed. Reduced conferences and travel means fewer leads for licensing and funding partners. Backed by the largest proprietary database of technology information, Wellspring's Scout tool enables you to proactively research technology landscapes, perform patent searches, and identify companies and other institutions interested in licensing your technologies. Plus, we will discuss the Scout roadmap and future features to support the work of tech transfer.
