FORT COLLINS --  CSU Ventures  and CSURF  on Wednesday welcomed visitors to an open house for their new offices at 2537 Research Blvd. just south of the Colorado State University campus.CSU_Ventures_inside

CSU Ventures, the commercialization arm for CSU, and CSURF – Colorado State University Research Foundation – moved into their new digs in December.

The two CSU organizations previously shared an address just north of campus at 601 S. Howes St.

The move to 2537 Research Blvd. came after 20,000 square feet of additional space was added to the CSU-owned building.

Todd Headley, CSU Ventures president, said the new offices and conference rooms on the building's second floor are more spacious than the previous location.

“It does give us an opportunity for the entire group to be together,” he said.

Headley noted the new offices are also more easily accessible by the public, with more parking than the Howes Street location.

CSURF is a private, not-for-profit corporation established to assist CSU and CSU-Pueblo, whose functions include patent and licensing management, financing of equipment, real estate and buildings and land acquisition, development and management.

CSU Ventures had 640 inventions in 2014, up 74 percent over 2010, according to its 2014 annual report. The 501c3 not-for-profit organization reported $110 million in net product sales from CSU innovations in 2013.
