Tech Transfer/Early Stage Funding Panelists Announced for 2009 Micro Nano Breakthrough Conference

Portland, OR | Posted on August 3rd, 2009

MNBC 2009 will be addressing head-on the challenging environment for early stage funding with an outstanding panel of tech transfer and early stage investment experts, addressing such topics as:

· If recessions are when great opportunities are born, how exactly does one take advantage of that?

· Is the VC model as we know it dead?

· If so, what will replace it?

· What first steps must the technology entrepreneur get right?

The panelists are:

Dr. Fiona Wills, Director of TechTransfer and Technology Licensing, University of Washington

Cheryl Cejka, Director of Technology Commercialization, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Jim Torina, President and CEO of The University Funds, LLC.

Rick LeFaivre, Ph.D, Partner, OVP Venture Partners

Michael Hochberg Ph.D, EE professor (and entrepreneur), University of Washington

Lewis Lee, co-founder of Lee & Hayes PLLC

Chris Hurley, co-founder and Principal at Beacon Law Advisors

Panel Moderator: Pat Murphy, COO, The University Funds, LLC

And for the first time, MNBC will accept conference participants' questions for the panelists in advance. Questions may be submitted (attributed or anonymous) at:
