Testimonial 1
Arizona Technology Enterprises (AzTE) hired Ground Floor Partners to support our commercialization team as we evaluated a promising technology developed by a scientist within the laboratories of Arizona State University. Because of the substantial number of potential market applications for the technology, we realized our office could use outside assistance to help understand and decipher which markets offered the greatest possibility for success.

We asked Ground Floor Partners to construct an overall list of potential commercial applications for the technology and narrow them down to a handful of “best opportunity” markets. The consultants were then tasked with constructing market size estimates for the five strongest application areas. Additionally, the consultants offered competitive intelligence on those technologies and companies already operating within the defined market segments. With this information, AzTE had a much better understanding of where our technology stood in the various markets.

Thanks to Ground Floor Partners’ research work, AzTE have been able to rapidly move forward with the commercialization process. The firm presented us with evidence that allowed us to select the optimal strategic platform with regard to maximizing the revenue potential of the University’s technology.

I look forward to working with the principals at Ground Floor Partners again and would recommend their work to other technology transfer offices throughout the country.
