The Changing Face of Technology Transfer and Early Stage Venture
Organizer: Pat Murphy, The University Funds
Today’s emphasis on delivering more value to society from the $billions invested
in research is both problematic and opportunistic for our institutions,
researchers, entrepreneurs and investors. While research budgets are generally
increasing in many areas, the capital markets mess and other economic factors
have caused venture capital sources to shrink significantly. Private (Angel)
startup investing is hard to find. The generally depressed economic activity
doesn’t bode well for new product entries. On the other hand, economic
downturns often stimulate a wave of new ventures.
So how does the aspiring inventor/entrepreneur best pursue commercialization
of their innovation? What are the decisions you must get right the first time?
What common business traps must they avoid? What resources are available to
provide guidance and assistance? How are changes in the IP/Patent
monetization arena impacting strategies for emerging businesses? Is the current
Venture Capital model “dead”, or just in need of re-tooling? How can startups
improve their odds of not only ‘surviving’, but thriving – and earning high returns
to themselves, as well as their early and late-stage investors?
This year’s end-of-conference plenary session brings together 7 regional experts
in the field of IP commercialization; Entrepreneurs, Technology Transfer Mgrs,
Venture Capital Partner, Startup Acceleration CEO, IP/Patent Attorney,
Corporate and Finance Attorney –all with deep experience, valuable expertise
and a diversity of viewpoints. The moderated panel session will be addressing
selected topical issues, pre-submitted Attendee questions, as well as questions
directly from the audience.
Please plan to attend this 1:30 pm Wednesday session, and then socialize with
the panelists at the Closing Reception immediately following.
Confirmed Panelists:
Dr. Fiona Wills, Director of UW TechTransfer, Technology Licensing at the
University of Washington in Seattle, WA.
Cheryl Cejka, Director of Technology Commercialization at Pacific Northwest
National Laboratory (PNNL) in Richland, WA.
Jim Torina, President and CEO of The University Funds, LLC, a business
accelerator and seed-stage venture fund company based in Bellevue, WA.
Rick LeFaivre, Ph.D, a Partner at OVP Venture Partners (with offices in Seattle,
WA and Portland, OR), where he focuses on technology-based investments in
information technology, digital biology and digital energy.
Michael Hochberg Ph.D, a electrical engineering faculty member at the
University of Washington, who has co-founded two companies: Simulant, which
sold the first commercial distributed FDTD code, and Luxtera, a venture-funded
company working to commercialize silicon photonics.
Lewis Lee, co-founder of Lee & Hayes PLLC, and has developed expertise in many
diverse technologies and business processes. He is also the co-author of two
books, Intellectual Property for the Internet in 1997 and Managing Intellectual
Property Rights in 1993.
Chris Hurley, co-founder and Principal at Beacon Law Advisors in Seattle,
Washington and has been working with technology startups for over 16 years.
