Connecting Venture Capitalists to Nanotechnology
Although nanotechnology plays an ever-increasing role in developing the materials and technologies of the future, many inventors have a difficult time attracting investors.
"A lot of people have tremendous good ideas, but they don't know how to get the first step, how to get the first initial capital funding to get a prototype developed," said Lloyd Tran, president of the International Association of Nanotechnology.
His organization is hosting a forum today where venture capitalists will discuss how micro-engineering could be used in many industries, from computer hardware manufacturing to the lightweight carbon nanotubes now used in some airplanes.
