9.13.19 VIS19 Funding Startups Luncheon Recap

Luncheon zooms in on federal labs and manufacturing initiatives, plus SBIR federal funding and venture capital for startups.

Co-located with the annual VertueLab Impact Summit, the September Funding Startups luncheon drew a modest crowd of conference attendees to learn from a panel of tenacious, regional entrepreneurs as well as funding experts in SBIR/STTR, angel, and VC funding.

Moderated by Steve Morris, OTBC and VertueLab Entrepreneur-in-Residence, the panels included:

Leon Wolf VertueLab | SBIR-STTR federal funding
Laura Kubisiak OEN Venture Catalyst | Other funding opportunities
David McFeeters-Krone Intellectual Assets | Federal Labs and Manufacturing USA Initiative
Moriel Arango BladeRunner | Bio-inspired hydropower
Patti Smith Hemex Health | Affordable medical diagnosis platform
Virginia Emery BetaHatch | Insects as an alternative for animal feed and fertilizer
