The coronavirus shutdown brings a whole new set of unknowns, what-ifs, and other uncertainties for technology transfer offices and the start-ups they’re nurturing. Most will feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic for months and possibly years to come.  As a result, tech transfer offices and the start-up companies they support need to work together to navigate these choppy waters while protecting their intellectual property. For example, taking advantage of various governmental programs such as the CARES ACT, modifying license terms and conditions, and conserving capital.

Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has teamed up with esteemed attorney Tyson Benson and Mark S. Coburn, Senior Associate Director in Georgia Tech Research Corporation’s Office of Industry Engagement, for this guidance-filled webinar that will discuss the critical issues that TTOs and university start-ups are facing — and how to successfully navigate these new challenges: Weathering the COVID-19 Storm: Supporting University-Based Start-ups and Protecting Intellectual Property, scheduled for May 27.
