Join us at the WPI research expo and discover how you can capitalize on new opportunities.

As an entrepreneur or investor, meet with WPI researchers that may be seeking to build a new business.

For companies seeking innovative technologies on which to grow revenue streams, use this opportunity to connect with the WPI licensing office.

Researchers will provide a 3-minute overview, followed by 'speed-networking' when you can get more information about their research, discuss possible opportunities and share contact information.

This Venture Forum event will facilitate conversations between WPI researchers and entrepreneurs, businesses, investors, and job seekers.

See the WPI Campus map for directions.
