The venture track process starts by completing and submitting the Venture Disclosure Form. The process ends when either the venture idea is abandoned or when the venture is successfully incorporated and a duly signed license/transfer agreement is closed between the spin-off company and Ghent University.

The focus of the venture track is to make sure that you as an entrepreneur or entrepreneurial team get access to the desired research results and for Ghent University to get assurances that the startup has a well-documented strategy and plan to get its business going.
