Licensing Technology to Launch Your Startup Company

This is an article I wrote published September 8, 2010, in the on-line edition of Mass High Tech (now part of Boston Business Journal). The article discusses licensing technology from hospitals,  universities or larger companies from the startup company perspective, including what terms and payment structures does the entrepreneur or VCs seek in licensing.  The article discusses royalties, license fees and milestones, equity, sublicensing, royalty stacking and other terms.




If you are an entrepreneur or executive in a small company considering or negotiating a license for technology and have questions or need assistance, please let me know.
