ASTP-Proton started a new community aimed at “Micro-TTOs”. This community is open to everyone, but acts as a support base for the smaller offices. Within this group, members can share knowledge and experience (both good and bad!) of utilizing new initiatives, tips for reducing workload, finding optimal ways to conduct prior art and market searches, getting noticed and better supported by the host institution and many others. The aim is to be able to push the already limited resources further.
The target audience for a “Micro-TTO” in this case is an office with 5 employees or fewer, (i.e. those in the “Entrepreneurial state” of development); the challenges of a small team are obviously very different to a one-person office but they should still have a desire to grow!
