"Creating economic growth in today's Knowledge-Based Economy requires that regions find ways to convert local technology assets and intellectual property into revenue producing businesses.  The Pre-Seed Workshop is a perfect vehicle to accomplish this goal."

Host Coordinators

Our hosts organize the Pre-Seed Workshops for their local and regional communities.  It is no small task to assemble 40-60 high level professionals representing various disciplines and form the 6-8 PSW teams which will work together throughout the 2 1/2 day event!  Therefore, our hosts themselves are all high-level professional well connected to their local base of researchers, attorneys, serial entrepreneurs, business experts, tech transfer officers, etc.  It's amazing the collaboration they engender among all the local organizations supporting entrepreneurship to pull of each and every PSW!
