Ghent University Venture Track

The Ghent University Venture Track is a process for entrepreneurial researchers of Ghent University who are aiming to set up a Ghent University spin-off company. A spin-off is a startup company based on research results of the university.

In the Venture Track we provide support and guidance to researchers in the development of a well-documented and feasible strategy to ensure the greatest possible chance of success for their start-up company.

Together with the entrepreneurial researcher(s), at the start of the venture process, a plan is drawn up, with logical, successive goals: the milestones.

Upon completion of the Venture Track, the spin-off company can be founded. To this end, the spin-off is granted access to the necessary Ghent University research results. This is agreed in a license or transfer agreement between the spin-off and Ghent University.

To start the Venture Track, fill in the Venture Disclosure Form (VDF) and send it to spinoff@ugent.be
You are welcome for an intake meeting at UGent TechTransfer. If desired, this intake can be linked to the intake for an IOF project or a VLAIO spin-off mandate.
