This course covers the essentials of HOW to start a new venture. It will be of particular benefit to those who have either had direct experience of company formation already, or who have attended New Venture Creation 1 (First steps towards spinouts and start-up companies).

Event description

Company creation is a key element in the mix of instruments that allow Universities to deliver impact from their funding inputs and research outputs. Forming new companies can be a key enabler of developing new technologies and priming them for the market place, and a key tool for the knowledge transfer professional. It can facilitate economic benefits including a financial return to inventors and their institutions whilst creating new jobs and services of benefit to the local economy and beyond. New ventures may enjoy symbiotic relationships with their parent institutions investing in further University research and securing rights to develop arising IP. There is an increasing expectation that Universities and research institutes should be skilled at setting up actively managing their relationships with new ventures companies. Creating new ventures is a complex, challenging and immersive experience. This course gives a framework for knowing how to embrace this exciting challenge.
