Optical Startups - From Idea to Business
Tuesday, 7 November, 17:30-18:30
The optical community will hear from technology entrepreneurs on what it takes to develop and run a business. How to successfully take laboratory innovation, which often relies on highly skilled and very devoted personnel, and expand them into a business. How to avoid pitfalls of an indifferent bureaucracy that takes over the technology with lesser skilled and less devoted personnel.
