Are you an aspiring entrepreneur that is confident that you can build the next great start-up, but you just need the core innovative technology to get you started? Enter the world of deep-tech. Large research universities, like Virginia Tech, create new early stage technologies from their research. These technologies provide a powerful catalyst for startups opportunities. Often called “deep tech,” these technologies emerging from research offer enterprising entrepreneurs a potent spark of inspiration for creating new ventures. In this session. Mark Mondry, Director of LAUNCH Center for New Ventures at Virginia Tech, illuminates the possibilities in leveraging deep tech to build great startups and explains how the unique attributes of the DC region offer significant advantages over other startup ecosystems.
