Tech Transfer Tips for Tech / Life Science Startups

Hill Building, One Hampshire St.
Cambridge, MA
Boston Entrepreneurs' Network (ENET)

Universities are excellent sources of cutting-edge science and technology – the kinds of innovations that can form the basis for important, novel commercial products. While academic investigators are indeed highly innovative, organizations that develop commercial products tend to fall into the realm of businesses, whether large, established corporations, or startups founded by ambitious, energetic entrepreneurs. The skills and infrastructure needed for product development and commercialization are quite distinct from academic innovation needs and typically are well outside of the scope of academic interests. 

However, BEFORE any product development happens, a business must make a deal with the academic institution to gain rights to develop the innovative assets of interest. Agreeing to terms for such transactions can be time-consuming and often contentious, given the potentially very different interests and resources of the negotiating parties.  

Tonight’s panel will offer insights that help to identify the challenges and to offer tips for effective resolution of differences. Of course, ENET is all about start-ups and entrepreneurs so that we will focus on the academic/entrepreneur transaction.
