Technology transfer in public sector has been generally performed with large firms and high-tech ventures due to high level of expertise knowledge and capability demands with the objects of realizing successful commercialization. But recent public and private promotions of startups with ICT niche services, public institutions began to have interests on possibilities of technology transfer with these none technology based startups. Thereof, the purpose of this study is to to review the most suitable technology transfer assessment measurements particularly focusing on non-technology based pre-startups and micro-startups. Based on the reviewed and selected measurements, 323 technologies of the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) were evaluated. This study conducted expert interviews and face-to-face expert surveys to draw 60 promising public technologies that can be the most suitable to ICT start-ups. The evaluation results indicated that 'Environment Control System for Smart Greenhouse', 'Fixed-PTZ Camera-linked Face Tracking Technology' and 'Multi-layer Copper-clad Fabric Circuit Board (FCB) Technology' were the top three, respectively. The findings of this study would be a guideline for the promotion of ICT-based startup businesses. The approach and findings of this study contributes to the initial stage of the theoretical and empirical research idea of the non-technology based ICT startups.
