PhD Plus Commercialization series provides a  more specific background in the players and processes involved in the commercialization of inventions/discoveries (e.g., stakeholder interests, patents, license structures, sources of funding and deal terms, founders' agreements, incorporation). This module is offered every Spring semester, and developed in collaboration with the UVA Darden's Batten Institute and the UVA Licensing and Ventures Group.

PhD+ Commercialization seminar series will be offered every Thursday between March 16th and April 27th from 4-5:15 PM. The series will be in-person in Rouss Hall 403


Session 7 Topic: VC Term Sheets

Early stage investments also involve a wide variety of terms and protections. Today, we will return to the story of Genentech and Kleiner Perkins to understand how these terms found in investment agreements impact both founders and investors—particularly, in the event that the company is acquired.
