Rising Star Start-ups: How Indiana’s Research Universities are nurturing innovative ideas and companies

Join us as we celebrate innovation taking place at our three research universities—Indiana University, Purdue University and University of Notre Dame. Each play an equally critical role in stoking Indiana’s economy transferring groundbreaking research from the classroom to viable technologies and treatments in the marketplace. Together, the three universities’ annual research expenditures total almost $1.3 billion and they operate eight research parks across our state.

In this session, experts from each of the three universities will share how they are nurturing promising ideas into innovative solutions. We’ll first hear presentations from:

  • Scott Henderson, Vice President & Chief Entrepreneurial Officer, Purdue Foundry
  • Kelley Rich, Director of Technology De-Risking, IDEA Center, University of Notre Dame
  • Jason Lee Whitney, Manager of Strategic Partnerships, Indiana University Ventures

Following their keynotes, rising star startups from each university will participate in lightning round presentations. Networking reception will follow the event from 5-6:30 PM.
