2020 | New Tools, New Devices, New Fabs: Three change-makers and three pathways in one burgeoning innovation ecosystem
2020 September TBD
This Panel Session with a live Q&A component is organized in cooperation with Activate, a nonprofit that supports entrepreneurial scientists and engineers through two-year fellowships at leading research laboratories.
The focus will be on support systems — from funding, to education, to the need for more/better government support and streamlined corporate engagements — for early-stage startups.
Learn how a trio of entrepreneurial engineers are launching three very different microelectronics startups as they work to surmount common early-stage challenges and learn about the strategies they are deploying to gain traction.
