Meeting Announcement: Entrepreneurship and Technology Commercialization

Tuesday, April 21st, 2015

Tuesday, April 21, 2015
Power and Energy, Power Electronics, Computer, and Consumer Electronics
Societies Joint Meeting, Co-sponsored with San Diego State University (SDSU)

Entrepreneurship and Technology Commercialization:
Experiences and Best Practices from SDSU 
Speaker:  Frank Steensnaes, Lavin Entrepreneurship Center at SDSU

How do you create value with a new technology? Sounds obvious, but why then, do so many new innovations fail to make it to market and produce value for the developer? This presentation will cover the concept of value and best practices for technology commercialization drawing on experience from Federal, State and private industry programs. Specific topics covered include customer learning, value proposition design, business models, and funding. We’ll look at some successful energy technology developers – what’s worked for them, and their roads to commercialization. We’ll also look at how the university is working in an environment where students and faculty are increasingly aware of and working to take advantage of the opportunities that await them as entrepreneurs. We’ll finish with some thoughts on what lies ahead for the energy industry in terms of new technologies and opportunities.
