Taking Inventions to the Marketplace

Event Date: 
Wednesday, June 13, 2012 - 12:00pm - 3:00pm
Location: 
Elizabeth Rockwell Pavilion, 2nd Floor

Technology Commercialization Seminar Series sponsored by the UH Center for Industrial Partnerships. While inventions create many business opportunities, they only bear fruit after they have been advanced to a point where they are ready to be accepted and needed by the markets. This transition from the lab to the marketplace is complex and involves partners, the least of which are investors. Dr. Dan Watkins, Managing Director at DFJ Mercury, a seed and startup venture capital firm, will discuss how to best handle this process and will provide tips to inventors. Kindly RSVP to Helaine Guillory at 713-743-9922 no later than June 7, 2012. Open to UH faculty, staff, and students.
