Entrepreneurial Youths to Speak

You asked for it! In a recent poll, attendees of Innovation Connection networking events asked for more activities centered on renewable energy themes, innovation success stories, and student involvement.

On Thursday, September 15th, in conjunction with the Michael McPhee Lecture Series, our Innovation Connection event will feature a panel discussion among five UConn students, who will discuss their entrepreneurial journeys and the range of UConn resources that helped them transform their great ideas into commercial products and processes.

Following the panel discussion, attendees can take advantage of the networking social and tour high tech green energy laboratories in the Center for Clean Energy Engineering (C2E2).

Everyone is invited…students, faculty, business professionals and friends!

In addition to UConn researchers and students, experts from the commercialization community will be on hand, including business development advisors, intellectual property lawyers, incubation experts, personnel from the UConn R&D Corporation and the Office of Technology Commercialization, officials from Connecticut Innovations and investors.  Don’t miss this exciting event!
