How are university spin-outs and other start-ups valued by investors and venture capital firms? On what basis is a price set for the equity an investor receives? Is there some secret formula? Is it a science, an art, or a little bit of both? And why is it so important for university technology officers to have an understanding of valuation techniques and what underlies them?
Opus Faveo Partners John Dupree, Christian Blackwell and David Overton will discuss valuation techniques, how you can use them to better understand the new venture environment of your university entrepreneurs, and what you can do to make your licensees more successful.
