Guests: Doug Hockstad, RTTP Assistant VP, Tech Launch Arizona


Doug Hockstad is TLA's Assistant Vice President. TLA helps to accomplish the broader University of Arizona mission by providing a variety of services to faculty that protect intellectual property, streamline the technology commercialization process, support the creation of startups based on University technology, and find commercial applications for university research.

Doug joined the UA with 25 years’ of experience in high tech markets, primarily in the software market, including both established company and startup experience, and most recently having served as Associate Director, Software & Engineering Licensing in the University of Michigan's Office of Technology Transfer.

The University of Arizona is a place of learning, invention, discovery, and a leading public research university. Tech Launch Arizona started in 2012 to help bring those discoveries to the world through commercial pathways (laboratory and into the marketplace). Their primary focus is ensuring that innovations originating with UArizona faculty, researchers, staff and students find meaningful applications.

Tech Launch is an incubator for StartUps with Angel Investors and VC connections. They also team with alumni, in concert with the technology and business community, to maximize the impact of UArizona research, intellectual property (IP), Licensing, patents, and technological innovation. 


The University of Arizona Center for Innovation (UACI) is a startup incubator network with locations across the Southern Arizona region. Half of UA Tech Launch is bio science, and there are 2 medical schools located in Tucson and Phoenix.


The Desert Angels works with UA Tech Launch on the investing side. Founded in 2000, the Desert Angels is a Tucson-based organization of accredited investors that seeks opportunities to invest in regional startup and early-stage companies. We represent a network of over 100 active angel investors, who have since invested $60million into 132 portfolio companies and 10 Sidecar funds. The Desert Angels have consistently been recognized as one of the most active angel groups in the country.
