Home > Press > The EntreTech Forum Presents 'Recent High Tech University Spin-Outs: Who is Funding These Deals and Why?'

Abstract:
The EntreTech Forum's October 21st panel focuses on the Forum's core theme: Given the wealth of research and technology generated by our nation's leading universities, how does this academic strength translate into commercial strength? Our October 21st panel includes a diverse group of company founders and CEOs leading new developments in life sciences, nanotechnology and micromachining, who will share their experiences on extracting their company's underlying technologies out of a university environment and gathering adequate funding to launch their ideas, platforms and products into wider commercial use.

About The EntreTech Forum
The EntreTech Forum consists of moderated monthly panel discussions on emerging academic research and the commercialization of this technology. It was designed for those interested in technology innovation and marketing collaboration and networking with fellow entrepreneurs, business and government executives, investors, and technology researchers.
The technology-innovation presentations feature entrepreneurial and corporate accomplishments along commercialization pathways with discussions of tech transfer and technology incubation and research from universities, industry and government. The multi-disciplinary subjects of raising and utilizing different forms of capital, building alliances and structuring deals are included as part of the programming, and serve as tools for the entrepreneur and researcher to commercialize science and technology.
The EntreTech Forum is an affiliate of Northeastern University's School of Technological Entrepreneurship (STE) and is directed by a governing board of business principals, investors, and researchers
