The 2009 Micro Nano Breakthrough Conference today announces the panelists for its traditional (but always innovative) closing panel on technology commercialization. Please join us in Portland, Oregon September 21-23 by registering at www.micronbc.org
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:
