Recent trends in university spin-out terms

    • - GMT

Are you an academic founder or an early stage investor?

Join us as we assemble a panel of leading authorities on university spin-outs, combining transatlantic insight and lessons from Cambridge Enterprise, Stanford University's Office of Technology Licensing and RA Capital to uncover the recent trends affecting your term sheet.

We'll examine the perspectives and ask the questions to help you create more effective partnerships, including:

  • University equity stakes – what is market? Research shows a wide variation of approaches. Also, will Universities accept higher equity stakes in lieu of financial payment obligations?
  • University non-dilution rights
  • Upfront fees or just historic patent costs?
  • Deal structures: licences v assignments?
  • Non-traditional spin-outs: what approaches are being taken to software or data-focused spin-outs? What about know-how based spin-outs?
