Business & Entrepreneur Partnerships (BEP) is the connection point between your vision and business growth. Whether you’re a researcher, mature company, early-stage startup or something in-between, we connect you with the right resources to grow business.
As a researcher, consider what you need to do to protect new discoveries, novel approaches or unique ideas—or perhaps you see potential for commercial applications. Our Technology Transfer team helps with those tasks and university/industry collaboration opportunities, ranging from materials transfer and confidentiality agreements to research collaborations, sponsored research and licensing agreements.
Whether you work with an established company or are an entrepreneur looking to start or scale a new business, UB's resources are here to help. From breakthrough R&D, world-class experts, new technologies, a diverse talent pipeline, high-tech equipment, facilities and entrepreneurial support, we make connections that help you grow your business.
BEP is the go-to team for companies and startups to connect and collaborate with UB. We’re a mission-driven team passionate about moving innovation to impact in Buffalo and beyond.
