TTOs at universities, government labs, and corporations often receive hundreds of invention disclosures per year. Not every invention can be pursued commercially.
Established corporations and entrepreneurs pursue innovative ideas for profit. Some opportunities fall outside of markets familiar to the team, and/or the staff do not have time to explore all options.
Venture investors and corporate acquirers can only pursue a small fraction of the deals they see. Pressure is high to minimize risk and maximize returns.
