WORKSHOP: RELATIONSHIPS WITH VENTURE CAPITALISTS

  15:30 - 17:00
  Room: Pieter van Slingelandt

Track II: Day-to-Day Practice

Relationships with Venture Capitalists

During license negotiations with spin-offs, the wishes of the VCs are often clearly expressed, and their views relayed by inexperienced company founders to the TT offices; sometimes accompanied with the threat that the deal will be cancelled if you do not respond appropriately.

While the TT office wants a deal, there are boundaries which cannot be crossed. This workshop shall examine this predicament with the Facilitator who has had experience on both sides of the negotiating table.

Facilitator:

Steven Tan, Nascent Ventures, Netherlands
