The Foundry

The goal of the Foundry program is to connect students who have entrepreneurial drive with research-based intellectual property with commercial potential through a licensing framework.

The Foundry program is a joint initiative developed by the Office of Partnerships and Innovation (OPI) and the Dunin-Deshpande Queen's Innovation Centre (DDQIC).
