Why is such a program needed?

Phd students, professors would prefer to focus on establishing their business and not get embroiled in the logistics. In many cases the support systems required for navigating the terrain in terms of Co-founders agreement, Ternsheets, defining and capturing IP, establishing patent applications, verbiage and Royalty discussions and negotiations with Universities is based on hearsay or inadequate reference points. The program will help demystify the process and create win-win arrangements.

Would the academicians be comfortable sharing their confidential material?

We assist with the process and we do not need any confidential material to be shared with us. Infact it is the founder’s prerogative as well as responsibility to protect their secret sauce.
