Come hear the discussion from 77 Business Professionals, CEO’s, Entrepreneurs and Academic Leaders on their insights into what it takes to convert an invention or concept into a prosperous business. James Spencer Jr., Director of RPI’s Tech Park, explains “This is not a lecture. This is not just ‘brainpower.’ These are people who have done it, with the cuts and bruises to prove it.”
Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Tech Park and Emerging Ventures Ecosystem (formerly the RPI Incubator) are hosting the first annual Business Opportunities to Success Summit on Thursday, December 5th, 2013.
But what makes this event so special? How about seven action-packed, hour long sessions with 7-10 speakers each? Speakers at BOSS will have 5 minutes or less each to discuss a hot topic critical to business success. Leaders will talk to real world challenges and solutions, revealing how to pivot the way to success through seven key stages of development every business must achieve. Also at this year’s BOSS, a presentation of the user-friendly Innovation Framework, providing attendees with a roadmap and approach to accessing Ecosystem resources to accelerate your product, business, or process innovation. Spencer also adds, “I’m trying to bring together two groups who traditionally don’t talk a lot: the business community and the entrepreneurs with ideas, including many researchers in the academic world.” Another professional’s opinion on the event is Thomas D’Ambra, President and CEO of Albany Molecular Research, Inc., “I believe this one-of-a-kind conference will benefit every attendee, from the inventor with an idea, to the entrepreneur just starting a company, to the CEO leading a growing company. We need more opportunities like this to learn from one another and possibly create linkages to work together.”
Whether you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, interested student, investor, executive or business professional, you won’t want to miss your chance to learn from the leaders at BOSS to Master the Pivot! Why Not Change The World?
