University-affiliated Startups: Goals, Perspectives, and Considerations for Easier Negotiations and Long Term Success

 | 12 - 1 p.m. Central

A panel of Quarles experts will discuss a variety of topics surrounding university-affiliated startups. One panelist will explore university perspectives on initial negotiations with startups and the considerations surrounding a university taking equity in a startup. Another panelist will provide insights from the perspective of a startup advisor, encompassing both short-term and long-term goals, as well as potential challenges.

The panel will conclude by offering recommendations to both university and startup representatives regarding key terms in startup license agreements and the formation of university spinouts. They will highlight which frequently-negotiated items are of true importance and which are not. Additionally, the panel will address questions on specific provisions and aspects of startup negotiations submitted by attendees. Feel free to submit your questions in advance through the RSVP link or bring them to the presentation!
