Out of the Lab
Date: December 08, 2009
Location:Los Angeles
Out of the Lab and into a Business. LAVA Breakfast Meeting. Getting research out of the university lab and into a growing business poses a unique set of challenges - especially when the scientist is assumed to be the entrepreneur. Not only are the founders deeply invested in the research, but their chosen profession is academia rather than the business world. While having a thorough understanding of their breakthroughs in technology or science it is the routine acts of fund raising, hiring resources and managing for results rather than publications that make taking research out of the lab and into a start-up a special case. This panel provides real-life insights to both university insiders and outsiders on how to move university research successfully into commercial ventures .The panel includes local CEOs with lab to start-up financing experience (Caltech, USC, Pepperdine), early stage investor Mission Ventures and the moderators are a seasoned investor/entrepreneur and the Chair of the Entrepreneurship Program at Pepperdine University.
