Licensing from Universities with Ben Schlatka of MC10

Licensing from Universities with Ben Schlatka of MC10

You want to commercialize your thesis. Or perhaps you have met a dynamic technical co-founder focused on an existing problem. Either way you will need to license the core Intellectual property from the University. The right IP licenses can make the difference in raising capital for your company and its valuation. They also can help or impede your early commercialization efforts with partners. This will be a discussion & live case study format where we will cover key principles, sample term sheets and negotiation strategies from founders who have done it. We will practice a mock negotiation in small groups and compare results!
