FirstIgnite and Stony Brook University (SBU) partnered together this past Spring to increase corporate engagement support for Dr. Anthony Lubinsky and his team’s portfolio of technologies regarding dual-screen digital radiography.
FirstIgnite combined multiple technologies into a single marketing campaign in order to better communicate with potential licensing partners the full scope of SBU’s digital radiography portfolio. This approach increased the reach by expanding the net of total potential companies interested in meeting with the university. Next, FirstIgnite leveraged patents and publications associated with the portfolio in order to identify as many companies and contacts as possible.
With this large net of potential licensees identified, FirstIgnite conducted a 30 day marketing campaign, reaching out via email and LinkedIn to over 200 people at 80 companies.
FirstIgnite was able to connect the Stony Brook team with organizations around the world, including Anritsu, Esaote, Philips and more. These teams, interested in potential licensing opportunities with Stony Brook, now have a direct one to one feed with SBU staff moving forward into the future and for new collaborations.
