WBTshowcase to Present Emerging and Converging Companies and Technologies at WBT2010

Arlington, TX | Posted on December 30th, 2009

Produced by Development Capital Networks in cooperation with National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), National Association of Seed and Venture Funds (NASVF), Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC), and Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA), WBT2010 will feature 100 vetted and mentored emerging and converging materials science, information technology, energy, life science and nanotechnology companies and technologies.

Attendees include seasoned venture investors and Fortune 1000 licensing scouts representing a variety of industries each looking for early stage cutting edge global innovations.

"WBT2010, like each year before it, will offer an unparalleled forum that is both deal-focused and unbiased with regard to geography, funding source, or originating research institution," said Paul Huleatt, CEO, WBTshowcase. "Attending individuals will represent millions of dollars of investment capital and licensee opportunities." According to Huleatt, WBT is widely recognized for having the highest quality early stage deals. One in three WBT presenters goes on to secure venture funding, license their technology, or sell their IP outright, representing over $450 million raised to date.

WBTshowcase is accepting online applications from companies and research institutions interested in presenting their break-through technologies until December 14. Leveraging a screening panel of over 80 investors and licensing professionals, presenting companies and technologies are selected solely on the merits of their innovation and the specific investment or licensing opportunity.

An impressive group of sponsors continues year after year to support WBTshowcase. WBT2010 sponsors and supporters include U.S. Department of Defense, Roche, BNSF, Dallas Regional Chamber, The National Science Foundation, Industrial Research Institute, Licensing Executive Society, MRUN, NineSigma, and Penman PR among others.

WBT2010 is hosted by the Center for Innovation at Arlington, and co-hosted by the University of Texas at Arlington. Early registrations are being accepted through January 31, 2010.
