From Lab to Start-up: Exyn Technologies and IP Group
Exyn Technologies, Inc. was created in 2014 to commercialize micro aerial vehicle research developed by Dr. Vijay Kumar and the GRASP Lab at Penn. Exyn is also the first collaboration between Penn and IP Group, an investment group which develops new companies based on innovative university research. In this seminar Jason Smith will explain how IP Group identifies opportunities for partnerships and works with universities to turn research into new companies. Michael Dishowitz from PCI Ventures will discuss the ways Penn researchers can form companies based on their work and will also highlight the resources available at Penn for student and faculty entrepreneurs.
