Stanford University has longtime experience and extensive documentation for scientists and entrepreneurs. Policies and templates can be found online.

Stanford’s Office of Technology Licensing (OTL) receives invention disclosures from Stanford faculty, staff and students. They evaluate these disclosures for their commercial possibilities, and when possible license them to industry. If the inventions are successfully licensed, cash royalties collected by OTL provide funding to the inventors' departments and schools, as well as personal shares for the inventors themselves.
