AUTM Annual Meeting

AUTM Technology Valuation Course

Sunday, February 18
7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.

AUTM’s Technology Valuation Course teaches some fundamental principles governing the constructions of the financial terms that go into a license. The course discusses concepts such as valuation versus pricing and risk, and presents various valuation methodologies, including cost, income, industry standards (comparables), discounted cash flow, and a discussion of equity for start-ups. The first segment concludes with a review of payment structures within a license and shows the financial flows under a typical academic-stage life sciences license. 

The course provides practical applications of valuation methodologies, including the use of life sciences and physical sciences “case studies”. During the course, the class is divided into working groups tasked with developing license term-sheet proposals for the discussion by all participants.

The Technology Valuation Course is relevant for anyone responsible for negotiating licenses, or who would like to learn more about how various financial terms are thought in the context of a technology valuation. Attendees should have a basic familiarity with the structure and payment mechanisms used in a license and be proficient in web searching and Excel spreadsheets, and ideally should have taken AUTM’s Introductory Essentials Course for licensing professionals.

As a prerequisite to the course, attendees will have access to the Technology Valuation Four-Part webinar series, a $325 value, and be expected to watch these videos before the start of the course.
