Come meet regional student entrepreneurs and see the power of collaboration and muti-disciplinary teams. Developing and commercializing new technologies requires a diverse set of talent. Entrepreneurs must understand the technology, be able to identify product market fit, assess risk and potential, and effectively communicate their vision. These skills are rarely found in one person. Successful ventures require a team of people representing diverse backgrounds and skillsets. While such teams can lead to success, communication and coordination between the members can be challenging. The goal of this Summit is to provide networking opportunities for the Capital Region’s student entrepreneurs and provide real world advice on how to build and manage effective interdisciplinary teams for innovation.
With more than $24 billion in high-tech investments, SUNY Poly CNSE represents the world’s most advanced university-driven research enterprise, offering students a one-of-a-kind academic experience and providing over 300 corporate partners with access to an unmatched ecosystem for leading-edge R&D and commercialization of nanoelectronics and nanotechnology innovations.
