Commercialization Strategy [Describe the proposed commercialization pathway and the technology
transfer activities that have already occurred. Also discuss how the commitment of the institution to
transfer this technology to market translates itself into specific activities to be undertaken during the
term of the project. Describe how this project will increase the likelihood of attracting seed funding. If
licensing to an existing company is the preferred technology transfer option, identify Canadian
companies with acknowledged or potential interest in commercializing the technology. If possible or
appropriate with the proposed business approach, provide a letter of support from companies with
recognized interest or that are perceived as potential partners (receptors). A letter of support from
potential users or clients may also be useful.]
