University of Edinburgh: Introduction to Technology Startups

The afternoon of June 20 we have a break from ICQG 2012 (International Conference on Quantitative Genetics). I'll be giving a talk at the University of Edinburgh, in case anyone is interested. Both Charles Darwin and James Clerk Maxwell started their higher education at Edinburgh. It's quite an honor to give a lecture in the James Clerk Maxwell Building! :-)

Mmmm... doughnuts!


Roberts Funded Lecture

Introduction to technology startups

University of Oregon

Wednesday 20 June 2012 from 1600

All welcome!

In the past, applied research and development was concentrated at corporate labs like Bell, IBM, Xerox PARC, etc. 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. The talk is an introduction to this important and dynamic part of our economy, from the perspective of a physics professor and serial entrepreneur.

Lecture Theatre C, School of Physics & Astronomy, James Clerk Maxwell Building, Kings Buildings

Doughnuts and coffee at 1600
