Why is it, with all the attention being paid on campuses to entrepreneurial activity the success of university tech spin-outs is so small and difficult to achieve? Colleges across North America have initiated incubators, accelerators, mentor programs, entrepreneurial classes, business case competitions, venture funds and on and on. Yet for all the impact these programs have on student and alumni entrepreneurs, they seem to be doing very little in assisting university technology transfer offices to effect big leaps in tech spin-out volume or success.
What if all the attention being directed at start-ups is missing the point for university tech transfer offices? What if focusing on start-ups generally has caused us to create programs uniquely unproductive for spin-outs specifically?
Join Opus Faveo on Thursday, June 10 for a free 30 minute discussion and Q&A to find out how spin-outs are fundamentally different than start-ups. More importantly, hear why it matters so much: how university spin-outs are the next great opportunity to build value within the TTO and impact for the university or research institution. Hear about specific policies and processes to promote university tech spin-outs.
Date: Wednesday, June 10th
Time: 10:30-11:00am Central
Speakers: Opus Faveo Partners John Dupree and Christian Blackwell
