Questions

What is the best way to find co-founding team (preferably with a serial entrepreneur) who is ready to partner with academic centers and spin off technology

Go to your Tech Transfer office and talk to them about what other technologies in a similar space have been spun out, who is involved in each company from the university and outside. Find out those faculty, entrepreneurs and investors and talk to them. They will know who is most interested in working with tech from your university and who already understands the issues involved with licensing university inventions to a startup vs. trying to license that tech to a big company.

I used to be the director and startup advisor at of one of the Purdue Research Parks, which is the largest university incubator in the U.S.
