AUDIO ONLY - Hiring a Licensing Associate

This is an audio-only, downloadable recording of the webinar described below.

Licensing associates are on the front lines of tech transfer office operations: They work directly with faculty members, negotiate deal terms with industry counterparts, coordinate patent prosecution strategies, market technologies, educate and manage expectations, and so much more. A successful licensing associate must be able to shift gears rapidly and move nimbly from one topic and task to another. This webinar will examine the qualities that factor into the decision to hire a licensing associate, with a focus on both the essential "hard" qualifications that are a prerequisite for success, as well as the "soft skills" that are fundamentally just as important when selecting the right person for this challenging role. This webinar will be particularly helpful for tech transfer directors and managers in charge of hiring, and candidates seeking to land licensing associate job.

AUDIO ONLY - Structuring Equity License Transactions

This is an audio-only, downloadable recording of the webinar described below.

With the heightened attention of senior academic administrators on economic development and fostering innovation ecosystems, academic technology transfer organizations are increasingly focusing their commercialization activities on identifying, qualifying, incubating, accelerating, and financing start-up ventures. This top-down pressure is aligned with bottom-up pressure from faculty researchers who are interested in the impact of their discoveries and want to commercialize them through start-ups. Technology managers are now thrust into new roles beyond positioning the licensed technology to become part of a commercially successful product in a thriving company. To achieve these goals, technology managers and other licensing executives need to: understand the most critical economic terms that should be included in equity documents, consider alternative deal structures to improve the probability for success, and build a deal structure that facilitates • not impedes • an exit opportunity for each equity position. This session will provide attendees with the tools they need to improve their skills in structuring equity license transactions.

AUDIO ONLY - The Economics of Innovation

This is an audio-only, downloadable recording of the webinar described below.

Innovation is the primary driver in each of the sectors that impact our lives • the economy, health, energy and security. The problem is that today, roughly 4 percent more IP is stolen than gets licensed; this theft amounts to $1 trillion p.a. in the U.S. alone. Meanwhile, 30 percent of all R&D is wasted reinventing what someone else has already discovered. While there is very little management of IP (less than 5 percent of organizations use any kind of IP management tool), there is even less agreement on the best practices for managing IP. In this session, we’ll discuss best practices - gleaned from several hundred professionals in the field - and how performance improvements can be made in universities.
