Six months after Linden Rhoads took the reins as Vice Provost at UW Tech Transfer, Xconomy Seattle reporter Luke Timmerman has done a two-part interview with her to find out what’s been accomplished so far and what lies on the road ahead.
There’s been a dramatic change since Linden’s arrival. The tech transfer officers are crawling all over our building working with students and faculty. An Entrepreneur-in-Residence program has been started. Janis Machala, an incredibly experienced and well-connected startup “coach” who many of our previous startups have worked with, has been brought on-staff. It’s like night and day.
