We assisted the technology transfer office of a prominent southern university in finding a start-up to license IP. The company has recently received a Series B round. We were engaged at an early stage to work with the university in 2008. We made contributions to the university prior to their filing the patent, which was issued just one year after filing. Not only did we find the start-up entrepreneur interested in licensing the technology, but we also played a significant role in negotiating deal terms as part of the university’s team.
In 2014, we found another licensee for the technology in a different field of use.
