Hiring a Licensing Associate:Selecting the Best...

This webinar will be recorded on October 11, 2018 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
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.

Structuring Equity License Transactions for Success

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.

The Economics of Innovation


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.

The ABC's of the NSF I-Corps Program


The National Science Foundation (NSF) I-Corps program prepares scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the university laboratory and accelerates the economic and societal benefits of NSF-funded, basic-research projects that are ready to move toward commercialization. Through I-Corps, NSF grantees learn to identify valuable product opportunities that can emerge from academic research, and gain skills in entrepreneurship through training in customer discovery and guidance from established entrepreneurs. In this webinar, we'll explore how universities can join the National Innovation Network by becoming I-Corps Sites or Nodes, and how academic researchers can take advantage of the $50,000 I-Corps Teams grant and training program.

Prioritizing Your IP Portfolio

Do your technology managers have overwhelming caseloads? Are patent costs outpacing growth in licensing revenues? Are departments underreporting new inventions given their research dollars? This session will present best practices in getting the IP portfolio under control, which in turn increases staff productivity, minimizes patent costs, and positions the TTO to achieve greater success. Drawing on the real-world experiences at several universities, the panellists will share their successful strategies to optimize the IP portfolio. Examples will illustrate how these strategies helped TTO staff focus on high-potential innovations; achieved substantial cost savings by eliminating unproductive patents; and revealed the portfolio’s strengths, weaknesses, and overall strategic value. Presenters will provide advice on how to plan for strategically examining every technology in the IP portfolio. This session is ideal for TTOs with a backlogged/legacy portfolio of unprocessed disclosures as well as for those where ongoing operations need a boost in efficiency and/or effectiveness.
