cover art for Beyond the Breakthrough episode 99

This is a slightly different episode of the podcast — we’re bringing you a recording of a recent webinar, Treasure hunting for seed pearls at universities and national labs. The panel features Lisa Smith, chief executive of Midlands Mindforge, Imec.xpand partner Tom Vanhoutte, Chevron Technology Ventures’ Gautam Phanse and Stanford spinout Cala Health CEO Renée Ryan.

The panel discusses a whole range of ways of increasing spinout success — from finding creative ways to bring in entrepreneurs to having corporate partners as “builders” rather than “consumers”.

This is an edited version of the webinar — you can find the full version, which includes slides with interesting data, at Visit that link to sign up for future webinars as well — it’s free.
