The IP generated during my Ph.D. will be owned by me, but I will eventually have a profit-sharing contract with my University.

I hope you either have a really good understanding of the assignment agreement you signed when starting your PhD or have a good attorney on retainer....

Until published this sounds like a bunch of baloney.

Also I hope they have a good attorney because they're going to have a rude awakening when they realize all work done at their University or using University material is owned by the University.

Maybe just an excited PhD student, to give benefit of doubt. But really hate to see this false idea that anyone can just do a PhD and then start a cool startup doing stuff like shoving pencils through people's skulls to "download their brains."

Yeahhh.... they're not answering serious questions, just head-in-the-clouds questions. The University likely owns everything by assignment.
