Striking the right balance when structuring equity deals with faculty start-ups is a delicate challenge that requires a full understanding of the financial levers involved. Each party will be impacted as the new venture gains value while taking on new partners — and a more complex cap table. And when founder’s equity must be divided at the outset, it’s even tougher to sort out an agreement that works for all — and for the health of the company — over the long term.

Equity Terms and Distribution in University Start-Ups: A Best Practice Collection, produced by Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division, provides over 3 hours of instruction on how to best draft equity and dilution clauses with the long-term in mind. We have partnered with top IP licensing experts to help you draft agreements that walk this tightrope effectively, protect your university’s and your faculty’s interests, and prevent investor turn-offs that can doom the start-up’s prospects at critical stages of growth.
