Tech Transfer Central has just published University Startups: Lessons for TTOs in Support, Funding, Licensing, Ecosystem Development, and Management, a new 150-page report providing from-the-field guidance on the full range of challenges in the complex arena of new venture development based on university innovations.

The report is broken into five sections:

  • Start-up Germination and Support, covering incubation and acceleration, matching IP with entrepreneurs, nurturing early-stage ventures and educating founders.
  • Start-up Funding, featuring guidance on capital attraction, working with angels and VCs, building internal funding mechanisms, SBIR/STTR, and crowdfunding.
  • Start-up Licensing, with examples of express start-up licensing programs, a model term sheet, and pre-incorporation option agreements.
  • Start-up Ecosystem Development, including strategies for filling the entrepreneur gap, using university resources to assist non-university start-ups, building a local venture community, and talent attraction.
  • Start-up Management Issues, addressing going beyond start-up to scale-up, managing EIR and mentor programs, equity and cap table management, internal de-risking, board participation, building start-up teams, and exit strategy.
