Time: 9:00 am - 5:30 pm
Location: Kemper Hall 1065
Are you interested in learning about technology entrepreneurship? Do you have an idea or invention and want to learn how to license or launch it? Would you like to meet like minded student entrepreneurs and get involved in a startup? Invention to Venture (I2V) is for you!
I2V is intended for undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, science, and technology, and is open to students, faculty, and staff from all disciplines, as well as to the general community. This one-day workshop is designed to provide participants an overview of the venture creation process and to inspire university entrepreneurs to pursue an idea or innovation that benefits the planet and its people. Participants attending the event learn the challenges and opportunities associated with taking an idea, invention, or research innovation to market. Participants also connect with resources, partners, and programs that can facilitate the pursuit of their entrepreneurial ambitions.
Come and learn about the resources available for student entrepreneurs nationally and on campus. Hear from and network with young entrepreneurs who have already turned their ideas into successful ventures. Connect with ETTC, a startup incubator located in the UC Davis campus that is accelerating the commercialization of university technologies. Presentation topics include idea generation, opportunity recognition, funding sources for your venture, licensing your idea from the university, and related topics. Registration is required.
Come to I2V, and stay for "In Conversation with Steve Wozniak", moderated by Dean Enrique Lavernia and presented by the UC Davis College of Engineering as part of its 50th anniversary.
Invention to Venture workshops are held in cooperation with the National Collegiate Inventors and Innovators Alliance (NCIIA), which is supported by the Lemelson Foundation.
