      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.

The Forum will consist of two events: a venture capital (VC) panel discussion and a business plan competition. The VC panel will offer a moderated question-and-answer session that will help academic institutions and their affiliated new ventures understand the venture capital perspective and more effectively work together to build value in our university-affiliated technology companies. The business plan competition will offer a rare opportunity to hear feedback on pitches. Learn what worked, what didn’t and why. Our panel of seasoned venture investors will judge the business plan competition, where university-related startup companies compete for a $10,000 cash prize.

This streamlined architecture and style popular in the 20’s and 30’s is enjoying a resurgence and the Art Deco District is one of the East Coast’s hottest night spots.
