Michigan Tech is a mother lode of innovation, a gadget-y geyser of creativity and imagination. But moving these innovations to the market requires a team of individuals with complementary interests, experiences, and expertise. Michigan Tech has a deep bench of talented scientist-inventors looking to make connections with others who can round out their teams and help them move forward on commercializing early-stage technologies.
The fledgling entrepreneurs on the following pages are looking for a special kind of missing person: mentors, advisors, and partners with the business acumen to help shepherd their new ideas through the Valley of Death that lies between a cool discovery in the lab and successful commercialization.
That missing person may be you. If your passion is nanotechnology, health, auto safety, or killer apps, you may want to connect with one of these inventors. If something else lights your fire, get in touch. Chances are, somebody at Michigan Tech is working on it.
