Faculty Startups: What Were They Thinking?
June 7 (Tuesday)
Noon – 1 p.m. (ET)

Why would a faculty researcher want to start a company? Why would a university encourage them to step aside from their “day job” to do so? As a new technology transfer professional or as an entrepreneur interested in joining a faculty-founded startup, you may be familiar with the policies and procedures surrounding support of such startups, but you may not know the unspoken motivations of faculty founders or even of the university.

During this webinar, our speakers will roll play a tech transfer professional advising a faculty member interested in starting a company. Attendees will be privy to their conversations as well as the thoughts and motivations behind their spoken words. Understanding what is not said is just as crucial for supporting a successful faculty startup as the deal terms that end up written in an agreement.

Novel Models for Licensing of Software, Content and Data
June 30 (Thursday)
Noon – 1:15 p.m. (ET)

Universities licensing software, content and data must overcome many issues, including providing support services, navigating Unrelated Business Income (UBI) and Private Business Use (PBU), following state laws prohibiting certain commercialization activities, and complying with data privacy laws. This session will explore novel, innovative and validated licensing models that address these challenges. Those new models include partnerships with local subject matter experts to provide service, joint IP development and commercialization models, digital platforms for dissemination, and dual licensing. We'll also cover licensing of clinical data.
