We are so proud of our first ever Penn State Venture & IP Conference on October 6th & 7th right here in State College. What an extraordinary and inspiring two days for all those in attendance--over 575 people!
As a leading driver of innovation, economic growth and job creation in Pennsylvania, Penn State University was honored to host this inaugural event, created to advance the forefront of innovation right here in the Commonwealth and throughout the country.
It is was a privilege to introduce over 70 exciting capital seeking entrepreneurs--including some of our own students and faculty members--to investors looking for ground-floor investment opportunities.
While we won't know the true impact of this event for months and years to come, the initial response to the roster of companies and the prominence of the investors in attendance was outstanding. But this is just the beginning and a harbinger of great things to come.
If you were able to join us in October, we want to thank you. If you were unable to attend, please plan on joining us when the event returns April 19 & 20, 2018.
