Abstract: This research focuses on technology licensing organisation (TLO) income analysis using a technology transfer growth model and a technology transfer strategy based on that analysis. The conclusion shows that TLOs in the preliminary foundation stage of gross license income (other license income plus running royalty income) under $1 million was found to be divided into four stages, and that, when gross license income turned into TLOs with more than 1 million dollars, it turns out that the proportion of TLO in stable stage increases as gross license income increases.

Keywords: technology licensing organisation; TLO; growth model; technology transfer; TTO; running royalty income; other license income; gross license income; foundation stage; development stage; stable stage.
