Startup Licensing 101: A Resource for Entrepreneurs Working with Companies Originated at Academic Institutions
For many entrepreneurs, licensing from a university may be a new experience. This series of webinars provides information that will be helpful for academic entrepreneurs contemplating their first (or perhaps subsequent) license from an academic institution. Presented by an attorney who represents many academic startups, including their investors, along with two academic technology transfer veterans, these webinars bring views from both sides of the table and best practices for a fruitful and efficient negotiation.
 In part one of this 5-part webinar series, the panelists will cover the background of the licensing agreement. This will bring important context to all of the subsequent webinars.

• What is technology transfer?
• Why do universities and companies enter into these agreements?
• Who are the key stakeholders on each side?
• What do the stakeholders expect of the negotiation and license?
