Date:5/11/2009

BOSTON, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- On May 19th, The EntreTech Forum will bring together some of the region's educators, researchers and entrepreneurs to focus on photonics/optics academic/commercial nexus of innovation, and to answer key questions around:

  • understanding the local resource base for photonics-based innovation
  • distilling the key drivers that define success or failure for early-stage research-driven photonics entrepreneurs
  • defining for the audience what the next great ideas in photonics/optics technology will look like

Whether for treating disease, advancing solar energy cells or enhancing semiconductor performance, recent advances in photonics and optics have created myriad opportunities for entrepreneurs to break new ground across a tremendously wide spectrum of commercial activity. As ever, the Greater Boston area's potent mix of university resources and entrepreneurial culture have made our region a leader in a new and constantly evolving technological field.

About The EntreTech Forum

The EntreTech Forum consists of moderated monthly panel discussions on emerging academic research and the commercialization of this technology. It was designed for those interested in technology innovation and marketing collaboration and networking with fellow entrepreneurs, business and government executives, investors, and technology researchers.

The technology-innovation presentations feature entrepreneurial and corporate accomplishments along commercialization pathways with discussions of tech transfer and technology incubation and research from universities, industry and government. The multi-disciplinary subjects of raising and utilizing different forms of capital, building alliances and structuring deals are included as part of the programming, and serve as tools for the entrepreneur and researcher to commercialize science and technology.

The EntreTech Forum is an affiliate of Northeastern University's School of Technological Entrepreneurship (STE) and is directed by a governing board of business principals, investors, and researchers.
