What Burnside Development Does

The importance of academic research to the economy is clear. How to get from the laboratory to economic impact and jobs, is not. I know the way and can help make it happen.


Burnside concentrates on assisting people in the following areas:

  • Invention & Innovation
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Communicating the Value and Impact of research commercialization

I provide services covering research based, technology commercialization including, but not limited to:

  • Workshops and Training
  • Creation of Strategic Plans and then Operating Plans for implementation
  • Licensing Strategies for individual projects
  • Plan/implement start-ups – product development, market focus and financing plans
  • Obtaining financing for commercialization


Together with clients, we have achieved:

  • Higher rates of faculty involvement as success breeds more success
  • Economic impacts in the form of jobs and regional growth
  • Public and political recognition for value-creation from government-funded research
  • More public benefit from commercialization as more research is successfully commercialized


Global experience from Chile to India to the Middle East to the US and Canada, involving Academic, Private Sector and Governments.


Working with:

  • Academic and private entrepreneurs to create road-maps and plans for success.
  • Governments to formulate strategies and implementing programs to create supportive eco-systems for job creation and prosperity.
