National Chemical Laboratories, Pune Supporting Innovation at NCL, Pune

Note: Registration for this event is now closed.

Venture Center and NCL Innovations will soon host a unique event in Pune to showcase technologies - specifically those related to Polymer Science - developed by the scientists at National Chemical Laboratories (NCL). We invite entrepreneurs and technology commercialization professionals to participate and identify specific opportunities for taking these technologies to market.

Historically, there has been significant activity in technology licensing at NCL and other R&D labs in Pune. However, it is only now that favorable trends in regulation, venture financing, and government schemes for technology entrepreneurs can accelerate commercialization of IP/knowhow via licensing and spinoffs.

Attendees will get an opportunity to interact with scientists as well as participate in a 2-hour seminar on the process, challenges and rewards of technology commercialization. Venture Center will also elaborate on the newly launched Financing Landscape in India for Technology Ventures.

Venture Center will also provide a unique set of handouts relevant to technology commercialization and entrepreneurship, sourced from the Venture Center Library, which is offering discounted memberships until end of the year.

When: Friday, 13 November 2009, 9:00am to 5:00pm

Where: Venture Center, NCL Innovation Park (Address & Directions)
