Fall 2017-Spring 2018 Wildcatalyst Seminar Series: Launching (Research-Based) Start-Ups

The Wildcatalyst Seminar Series, hosted monthly during the academic year, is open to all and designed to be a meeting place for innovators, entrepreneurs, service providers, and anyone else interested in how the innovations of today represent the essential products and services for tomorrow’s needs.

This year’s Wildcatalyst Seminar Series theme is “Launching (Research-Based) Start-Ups.” Our aim is to demystify the start-up process and explore the opportunities, challenges, and pitfalls of launching a business by hearing about real-life successes and failures straight from the innovators and entrepreneurs.

While the general topics will be universal to all entrepreneurial-minded individuals, there will be an emphasis on starting a business around university research-born innovations and we are excited to explore this intersection of entrepreneurship and research. Each seminar will be led by experienced dreamers and problem solvers who have successfully launched businesses based on university-owned intellectual property, including the researchers who develop the IP and their industry partners who bring it to market.
