Keeping a Piece of the Big Pie

Duke's Office of Licensing & Ventures invites you to join this free lunch and seminar providing an in-depth look at venture capital perspectives on the economics of university startup formation. The speakers will take you step-by-step through the life of a company, illustrating the uses of equity and potential outcomes for founders. Data will be presented to support the conversation around founders' equity, the right allocation between faculty and postdocs and grad students, and how much equity one needs to give away to attract and keep your top talent.


The intended audience is faculty, postdocs, and students.

A venture capital firm focused on investing in startups that are commercializing pioneering university technologies. Osage partners with top research universities to invest in their most innovative startups, and Osage shares its investment profit with its partner institutions.
