Conflict of interestEdit

Conflicts of interest seem unavoidable in the tech transfer landscape, not only for the scientists, but sometimes also for the TTofficers, and managing these conflicts is of prime importance. Seasoned professionals provide you with an analysis of how they deal with conflicts of interest and conflicts of commitment in their respective institutions

The use and abuse of early-stage fundsEdit

Most technologies need further investment - whether to pay for patents or to develop further. Many governments/regions have got this message and are setting up early stage funds. How should such funds be structured and managed to ensure that they are useful and invested wisely?

Managing Universtiy Technology Development FundsEdit

Many universities now have access to development, pre-seed or Proof-of-concept funds that can be used to add value to technologies that are ‘too early’ for licensing. Used wisely, these funds can be extremely valuable, but they are easily squandered. In this session we learn from the experience of two such funds.

Improving Entrepreneurship through Venture ContestsEdit

Because we have a shortage of entrepreneurs researchers need to become more entrepreneurial and outside entrepreneurs need to be fed into our start-ups. We introduce Venture Cups as a way of achieving this.

Boostraping new venturesEdit

Is it possible to grow a business with minimal (or no) external investment? The attractions are obvious – no dilution or loss of control. All that is needed is an early source of revenue which can be reinvested in the business – which then grows in line with revenue. How realistic is this business model and under what conditions (and for what kinds of business) does it work?

Business AngelsEdit

Business Angels are often held out to be the ideal early-stage investor – they can fill the funding cap and management gap simultaneously. But how do you find them and what sort of businesses opportunities do they like? Are there any dangers that you need to be aware of and how do you structure deals with them? In this session we hear from an experienced business angel and a university TT manager who has worked with many angel investors. Tim Cook Presentation (ASTP members restricted access)

Corporate venture fundsEdit

Many major companies now run their own venture funds as a way of investing in novel technologies without bringing them in-house. Could we tap into the funds for our own spin-outs – forming joint ventures with the corporates? In this session we hear from two such funds – understanding where they invest and whether they are a viable alternative to venture capital.
