“Ensuring Smooth Tech Transfer between Start-ups and Universities”

October 5th, 2017

Start-up initiative - Swiss HLG

As part of the Swiss HLG Start-up initiative to support local entrepreneurs, we will work in collaboration with BaselArea Swiss, to present our latest Start-up Workshop. Most Start-ups are leveraging assets that are coming from universities. Executing this transfer smoothly is not always easy.

Both types of organizations have different missions and agendas, which sometimes results in conflicting interests and hectic negotiations. This workshop will explain the viewpoint from both parties and give clear strategies for a successful negotiation.

Registration and venue details will be released shortly.
