Innovators and entrepreneurs have different skillsets, sometimes it's the same person, but frequently it's not.

Are you an entrepreneur or investor looking for an innovative idea to develop into a business?

Are you a company that is looking for innovative technology to move your business forward?

The Venture Forum will provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs, established businesses, investors, and job seekers to meet and talk with leading researchers.  

It will be somewhat like 'speed-networking'. Listen to their brief pitch, if you like it, meet them in the networking session, find out more an, exchange contact information and start your discussions.

Emmanuel Agu:   Blood-alcohol content sensing system
