Entire ecosystems have been created at universities worldwide and within their local regions in support of start-ups and economic growth. These research parks, accelerators, and innovation districts are the cornerstone of advancement for university-born technologies. And while these efforts have been successful, some forward-thinkers agree that start-up communities are just the beginning and create the perfect foundation for “scale-ups” — the path that holds the promise of exponential growth far beyond the boundaries of most  university start-ups.

So, what does it mean to scale your start-up and how do you do it?

Technology Transfer Tactics’ Distance Learning Division has joined up with start-up expert, Silicon Valley VC , and experienced technology commercialization advisor Chris Yeh to bring you a dynamic webinar that will provide a critical assessment of what it really takes to build-and scale-startup companies that private investors will find attractive.   

From Start-Up to Scale-Up: Stimulating the Growth and Success of University Ventures

Mr. Yeh is the co-author, along with LinkedIn co-founder and chairman Reid Hoffman, of the forthcoming book “Blitzscaling,” based on the research that went into a popular course taught at Stanford University.

Order today and hear him discuss:

  • How to avoid common traps that cause university start-ups to falter
  • What VC investors are really looking for
  • What it takes to scale, or “blitzscale,” a company
  • Establishing the milestones start-ups need to meet in order to scale and succeed

PLUS: Hear the recording of the original Q&A portion of the program!
