On-Demand Webinars

You can watch any of the following webinar presentations, which were hosted by the OSA Fiber Optics Technology & Applications Technical Group, on-demand.

At Frontiers in Optics 2020, the Fiber Optics Technology and Applications Technical Group hosted a special round table event featuring entrepreneurs sharing their insights and experiences in a diverse pool of markets in optics and photonics, ranging from bio-oriented applications and fiber lasers to optical communications and photonic component markets.

The panelists, Michelle Stock, Iñigo Artundo and Barbara Buades, discussed how they conceived of an initial idea and curated it into a feasible business case, secured investments, and de-risked the business. The panelists also shared their thoughts on the day-to-day running of a start-up, navigating customer demands, generating value, and final exit strategies. Finally, they offered their point of view on the current trends and challenges in their respective markets and advice for young entrepreneurs on how to kick-off a business. You can watch the full event from Frontiers in Optics below.
