The US and UK have shown record equity investments made into academic spin-outs over the last few years, including during the pandemic. While the US is still at the centre of the global venture capital investment market, opportunities for investment across the world are picking up.

In this scenario, the rapid digitisation of the economy during the pandemic is likely to accelerate international transactions. What are the pros and cons of global cooperation in early-stage technology investment? What are the roles of university-based funds and the government in facilitating or stemming international investment? Are there any emerging trends in the global university spin-out investment market that we should all be aware of?

Join us in this debate on topics such as:
• Local vs international co-investment
• Local vs internationally native companies
• Local vs international founding teams and investors
• Regulatory conditions for maximising local/international investment

The event will be chaired by TenU member Paul Van Dun, Director of KU Leuven R&D.

• TenU member Karin Immergluck, Executive Director, Stanford OTL
• TenU member Matt Perkins, CEO, Oxford Innovation
• Amy Schulman, Managing Partner, Polaris
• Lisa Shu, Executive Director, Newton Venture Program
