Tech transfer offices: How long does it take to secure a license?

We had Greg Schmergel and Keshav Singh on the Longevity Biotech Show two weeks ago. I asked Greg how long it generally takes to negotiate a deal with a university tech transfer office. He said 6 - 12 months.

This seems like a major obstacle to moving fast.

I know is spearheading a way to create a marketplace for biotech IP created at universities. But in the near term is there any other way of streamlining the tech transfer process?
