Questions for Consideration



     

Horn Entrepreneurship maintains full discretion over the selection process and all funding and in-kind services associated with the program, including grant amounts, terms and conditions.

 

Summer Founders includes open session presentations and external review of business concepts. Participation is voluntary, and as such, participants are responsible for determining whether to disclose proprietary or sensitive information. The University of Delaware assumes no liability for accidental or voluntary disclosures of proprietary information or intellectual property

 

Ownership of IP

You own any intellectual property (i.e., patents, hardware, algorithms, copyrights) you bring to the program. IP developed through the program and/or the process of business model testing and customer development etc. is shared equally among the members of the team (unless the team agrees to an alternative sharing agreement prior to the collaborative development of the IP). If the team is working with University of Delaware owned IP (i.e., research being conducted by one of the team members or a UD patent), you MUST check with the University’s Technology Transfer Office to better understand licensing issues.

 

Concerns about sharing your idea

If you feel your idea may become real, you should discuss intellectual property rights with your team from the beginning. If you can’t come to agreement with the team, you will need to join another team, pick another project, or drop out of the program.

 

Non-disclosures.

All Horn Entrepreneurship programs are open programs. There are no non-disclosures among students, faculty, mentors, advisors or any assisting outside party. Please keep in mind that ideas are best viewed as liabilities, rather than assets, because there are significant costs associated with pursuing them (in terms of time and money). Also, initial ideas seldom prove successful; most companies succeed because the process of learning, discovery, and execution that shapes an initial idea that is mostly wrong into something that people actually want to use. This process requires willingness to share your ideas openly with peers and others.
