Roberts Funded Lecture
Professor of Theoretical Physics & Director, Institute for Theoretical Science
University of Oregon
Wednesday 20 June 2012 from 1600
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.
