Drafting Equity Terms for University-Based Start Ups

By Jesse Schwartz
Published: October 18th, 2017

How you structure equity deals with faculty start-ups can have profound effects on both the new venture and the university’s ultimate stake in the fortunes of the company. The wrong moves in the initial license can scare off future investors and dampen the start-up’s prospects for long-term success, but terms that are too favorable for founders and investors can severely reduce the university’s returns when the business reaches a liquidity event.

Striking the right balance is a delicate challenge that requires a full understanding of the financial levers in the deal, and how each party will be impacted as the new venture gains value while taking on new partners — and a more complex cap table. Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has teamed up with two university technology licensing experts to bring you this detailed, practical webinar: Drafting Equity Terms for University-Based Start Ups, scheduled for October 26.
