About Us

Since 1965, the University of Utah and the state of Utah have established a global reputation for leadership in technology commercialization. But that’s only part of the story. On behalf of the U, PIVOT Center serves as a catalyst for the regional innovation economy, integrating technology commercialization, corporate engagement, and economic development. By integrating these functions, PIVOT Center positions the U and Utah to uniquely take advantage of the U’s burgeoning innovation. The center prioritizes connecting stakeholders (U faculty inventors, industry, entrepreneurs, investors, Utah’s innovation ecosystem) with each other and the U’s resources. PIVOT is responsible for all aspects of invention management, patent prosecution, licensing, start-up formation and support, equity management and early stage funding.
