When it comes time to seek outside funding for start-ups, valuation matters.  It matters a lot. Yet most founders and tech transfer professionals are at a distinct disadvantage in the valuation game, both in terms of methodology and strategy. A lack of expertise and know-how can leave you at the investor’s mercy, and the valuation you arrive at can literally have implications in the millions of dollars in terms of founder and university equity. In addition, initial valuation can have profound effects on later funding rounds, making a sound strategy looking forward at least as important as the actual valuation amount. And valuation of academic start-ups has its own unique challenges, particularly related to the elusive nature of valuing intellectual property and researcher know-how.

Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has teamed with Marty Zwilling, Founder & CEO of Startup Professionals, Inc., to present this critically important, one-hour program:
