Moderated by Orin Herskowitz, Senior Vice President, Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer, Columbia University, and Executive Director, Columbia Technology Ventures, the panel discussions will explore the innovations these companies are bringing to market, the role of federal funding in company formation, opportunities and obstacles encountered along the way, and ideas for encouraging more American-made innovation.
