Health & Sciences Track: University Licensing 101 with Ben Schlatka of MC-10
You want to commercialize your thesis. Or perhaps you have met a dynamic technical co-founder focused on an existing problem. Either way you will need to license the core Intellectual property from the University. The right IP licenses can make the difference in raising capital for your company and its valuation. They also can help or impede your early commercialization efforts with partners. This will be a discussion & live case study format where we will cover key principles, sample term sheets and negotiation strategies from founders who have done it. We will practice a mock negotiation in small groups and compare results!
We check all attendee registrations at the door. Please bring a printed or smartphone copy of your EventBrite registration and Harvard student ID if you have registered as a Harvard Student. Attendance will be limited to registered guests and tickets will not be available at the door.
