Licensing with EASE® stands for Express Agreement for Startup Entrepreneurs. Key advantages include:

  • Startup-Friendly, Investor-Friendly.
  • Favorable Terms. Venture Partners has ensured that the financial terms are significantly more favorable than national average university-startup licenses.
  • Choice. Select from Aligned, Blended or Equity-Free deal options.
  • Licensing with EASE is easy. Once your startup has met eligibility criteria and submitted an online application, your startup will receive Licensing with EASE terms. There is no need for lengthy and expensive license negotiations.
  • 1 Year Risk-Free for Equity. If your startup decides within the first year that it wants to pivot and does not need the CU Boulder technology anymore, simply walk away—the university takes no equity.
