Mind the Gap Summit: Attract External Investors to Gap Funded POC Projects and Startups

While just a small percentage of the total venture, corporate, angel activity, the role that early stage investors has and should play in the early development of research institution technologies and  startups should not be discounted.

More than the capital itself, these investors and partners bring a wealth of market knowledge and networks of management talent and business connections. Research institutions can take advantage of this resource by strategically integrating investors and corporations into their operation, especially in evaluatory and advisory functions.

In this session, we will discuss how active relationship-building between research institutions and the investment and corporate community supports operations, orders startup priorities, and strategically directs limited development capital in the near-term, while setting up the possibility for later investment and commercial partnership.
