Event: Entrepreneur Speed-Dating

Think your research might have

commercial value?

Interested in how commercialization works at UW?

Wonder about what it takes to launch a start-up?

Join us for an Entrepreneur Speed-Dating event for grad students and postdocs.

SPEED-DATING: Get ready for four intense back-to-back 20-minute sessions. Participants

confer with recognized entrepreneurs with experience in launching successful companies.

Entrepreneur Speed Dating is an invigorating session, pairing UW graduate students and

postdocs with C4C’s current and emeritus Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs), UW’s

Entrepreneurial Faculty Fellows (EFFs), and C4C Technology Managers. Our entrepreneurs

serve as an initial sounding board and a source of ideas and practical advice on starting a

company. Who knows? Your sessions may spark a longer-term relationship.

  • Who should date? UW grad students and postdocs who want to explore
    commercialization opportunities. Those who don’t yet have an idea, but wish to
    learn more about the start-up process and C4C resources are welcome to discuss
    their area of research.
  • SWAG: C4C’s coveted umbrellas and retro-chic C4C lab notebooks.
  • Networking: After the intensity of the speed-dating sessions, relax and enjoy the
    fellowship of your entrepreneurial colleagues, as well as food and drink courtesy of
    C4C.
When: Feb 15, 2012, 3:00 to 5:30 pm
