      To date, the I-Corps program has helped hundreds of university teams identify viable opportunities for commercialization.  The outcomes attained from I-Corps are enabling stronger relationships with faculty and reducing the friction in getting technologies out the door.  Some tech transfer offices have adopted new licensing models to accelerate the process.  I-Corps methodologies in customer discovery and unearthing the technology's value proposition are also aiding in the intake and evaluation process.  This course offers an overview of the I-Corps program, strategies for mapping I-Corps into the tech transfer office, and best practices for licensing and support for teams pre- and post- I-Corps.

      Although marketing takes many forms from one licensing office to the next, it is always an essential element of every successful technology licensing operation. Some offices are fortunate enough to have trained marketing professionals dedicated to this function. Most do not. Regardless of resources, the goal for this course is to present an overview of marketing concepts and ideas so you can gain a better understanding of how these concepts can be successfully implemented in your office to enhance your overall effectiveness.

      The AUTM Technology Valuation CourseSM teaches technology valuation as specifically applied to academic licensing. The first portion of the course reviews key concepts such as value creation, accounting measurements and key license terms that affect value and risk. It then reviews basic valuation methodologies, including cost, industry standards, comparables, profit allocation, discounted cash flow and equity. The first part concludes with a review of payment structures within a license. 

      The second portion of the course consists of case studies derived from real world examples. The class will be divided into groups to develop license term proposals, which will then be discussed by the class. If you have or will have responsibility for negotiating licenses, the AUTM Technology Valuation CourseSM is for you.

      Registrants should have a basic familiarity with the structure and payment mechanisms used in a license, an intermediate level of experience in license negotiations and basic knowledge of the valuation methodologies that are reviewed in the first half of the course. As a pre-requisite for the course, all attendees should have participated in the four webinars presented in the AM17 Valuation Course - Pre-requisite package. Once you register for this course, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access the AM17 Valuation Course - Pre-requisite course content.

      This year we are inviting participants to provide a real life case study for the class to review and provide suggestions and guidance based on the course content. If you are interested in submitting a blinded case to the teaching team for discussion during the course, please submit a one page summary of the case via email to andrewm@lsu.edu before February 15, 2017. If your case is selected by the course faculty, you will be contacted prior to the course. Please do not send any information of a confidential or proprietary nature.
