At the Duke University Office of Licensing & Ventures, we are seeing an increased need from faculty and staff for workshops and info sessions on what it takes to start up a company from one’s research. This fiscal year we’ve already doubled the number of startups from last fiscal year.
Dividing Start-up Equity: Keeping a Piece of the Big Pie (FREE LUNCH!)
Duke's Office of Licensing & Ventures invites you to join us for a free lunch and seminar providing an in-depth look at venture capital perspectives on the economics of university startup formation. The speakers will take you step-by-step through the life of a company, illustrating the uses of equity and potential outcomes for founders. Data will be presented to support the conversation around founders' equity, the right allocation between faculty and postdocs and grad students, and how much equity one needs to give away to attract and keep your top talent.
The intended audience is faculty, postdocs, and students.
