Disclose an invention

Once you're ready to disclose your invention, the first step is to complete our disclosure form. Inventors should use the form to share anything they've created — from an arc reactor to a Hodor door stop. Prior to submitting a disclosure, please review VCU's Intellectual Property Policy.

To get started, follow these steps:

  1. Download the invention disclosure form.
  2. Fill out as much information as you have available; view our tech transfer guide for help.
  3. Submit the form via email to techtransfer@vcu.edu.
