From Lab to Market OSU

September 30, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Students, faculty, and professionals looking to commercialize their science-based solutions…

Co-hosted by OSU Advantage Accelerator and VertueLab, discussions with two dynamic panels will paint the landscape of how you can get your idea to market. A panel of tenacious women entrepreneurs and researchers will provide insights into fundraising, grant management, scaling, and managing a startup. A panel of early-stage funding experts will provide their insights into different funding opportunities including: SBIR/STTR federal funding, state matching dollars, university funding, and other catalyzing funds.

Join us for yummy foods and refreshments while learning about taking your research & development to the next level. Plus, just meet other amazing women doing cool stuff.

We love to host no-cost events! Please be conscientious of the planning that goes into them by actually attending the event if you procure a ticket, thank you.
