Panel: From Innovation to Spinout; Life at the Intersection of University Research and Entrepreneurship

Sponsored by Columbia's Women Inventors Network and by Women in Science @ Columbia this discussion takes a deep dive into the tale of three scientist's journeys from innovation to spinout and what life is like working at the intersection of university research and the commercial sector.  Most importantly, this panel shares lessons learned from this experience with the younger generation of women inventors.
Michal Lipson who leads the Lipson Nanophotonics Group, Tilla Worgall, whose diagnostics startup received venture backing and Elizabeth Hillman who heads up the Laboratory for Functional Optical Imaging have all developed an impressive portfolio of IP, commercial engagement, and spinouts from their labs.
