In the COVID-19 era, VC and angel funding for university start-ups is more of a challenge than ever for most ventures. For some, however, the technology needs associated with the pandemic have actually increased investor interest. Telehealth and other COVID-related businesses are prime examples of potential unicorns for investors, yet many university-based start-ups have been stalled to clear the way for emergency projects. At the same time, there’s plenty of money on the sidelines, but will it be deployed – and when, and to what sectors? 

In all the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic and the struggling economy, it’s hard to know what the prospects are for funding, and how to proceed with your university’s start-up plans.

Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has teamed up with Bryn Rees, Assistant Vice Chancellor of Research & Innovation and Managing Director of Venture Partners for the University of Colorado Boulder, and Kirsten Leute, Partner in charge of University Relations with Osage University Partners (OUP), to bring you this critical webinar: The Status of VC and Angel Funding for University Start-ups During the Pandemic: Overcoming Current Challenges and Preparing for the Future, scheduled for October 15. We’ll cut through the confusion to provide you with supporting data and guidance on what to expect from angel and VC investors now and in the coming months as conditions change.
