The third event in Innovation Gateway’s annual Technology Transfer Educational Series, Bridging the Gap Between Academia and Industry, will be held Thursday, February 8, 1PM to 2PM in the Coverdell Auditorium S175.

The risks associated with developing novel technologies can deter companies from partnering with academic researchers. A way to overcome this hurdle is to de-risk the technology by developing it within a startup company. Innovation Gateway will walk you through the startup process at UGA and why this can be a useful tool in moving new technologies to the marketplace.

All of the events will be followed by a networking hour with refreshments in the Coverdell lobby.

Space is limited and registration is encouraged. Please RSVP to Tyler Duggins at tduggins@uga.edu or 706.542.8969.
