Startups for physicists

I gave this talk recently here at U Oregon. There were a lot of graduate students in the audience, which is great. I'm not sure how my colleagues found it though ;-)

Title: Startups for Physicists

Abstract: 20 years ago research and development was concentrated at corporate labs like Bell, IBM, and Xerox PARC. Today, innovation is more likely to be found at small, venture capital backed companies founded by creative risk takers. The odds have never been greater that you, a scientist or engineer, might someday work at (or found!) a startup company. This talk is an introduction to this important and dynamic part of our economy. (Originally presented at the Caltech Entrepreneur's Club.)
