How to Best Structure University Start-Ups for Long Term Success

By Jesse Schwartz
Published: April 18th, 2018

When transitioning IP from the lab into a start-up business, the decision regarding how to structure that business is an important one – in fact, it can have a profound impact on the long-term success of the company. Why? Because the structure you ultimately choose will either help or limit your ability to raise capital. It may also subject you to, or shield you from, federal duties and taxes. And lastly, it will either protect personal assets from creditors or allow them the right to pierce the corporate veil.

For university-based start-ups, it’s even more vital to properly define the business structure so the university and other major stakeholders understand the risks and benefits of moving IP from lab to start-up and beyond. On April 26th, join Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division and our expert team of presenters for How to Best Structure University Start-Ups for Long Term Success. They’ll conduct a deep-dive webinar workshop into the various business types, their pros and cons, and their impact on key business issues.
