More university TTOs are looking to support early-stage technologies and start-ups by entering the promising new world of crowdfunding. But participation in crowdfunding is not necessarily a slam-dunk, and it presents a whole set of new challenges both in regulatory compliance as well as managing conflicts of interest.

Whether you are handling crowdfunding projects through a third-party provider or are managing a home-grown platform, these regulatory and COI challenges must be addressed before venturing into this new territory.

That’s why Technology Transfer Tactics has secured a top crowdfunding expert to lead this cutting-edge webinar:

  • University-run crowdfunding portals and preferential treatment of spinouts
  • Faculty-owned interest in the company before the raise
