OSA Fellow Lecture: Photonic Innovation Driven Through Crowdfunding

7 December 2020, 23:00 - 0:00 - Bangkok, Hanoi, Jakarta (UTC + 07:00)

OSA Fellow Lecture:

Crowdfunding is one of the driving approaches to push ideas into reality. It simultaneously assists in broadcasting ideas worldwide, receiving feedback and comments from potential customers, raising the funds, and eventually starting the business. This talk highlights some of the photonics-related ideas that are explored through the crowdfunding approach. The presentation will be 40 minutes, followed by a Q&A.
