This year, we collaborated with Penn’s Center for Technology Transfer (CTT) on a discussion panel “How to Start a Materials-based Company.” CTT is in charge of transferring inventions and innovative knowledge to outside organizations for the benefit of society. The panel, geared mainly towards graduate students, focused on starting a materials science based company. Three CEOs from the Delaware Valley discussed their startup experience, and two experts, who assist new companies, provided information on available resources for entrepreneurs. Approximately eighty students attended the event.
