The University Of Washington: Entrepreneurship In The All The Right Places
Join us on February 12 to hear from Daniel Schwartz, Director of the new Clean Energy Institute (CEI), formed when Gov. Inslee and state legislators allocated $6 million to create a research center at the university that will advance solar energy and electrical energy storage capacities.
“The Clean Energy Institute is enabling us to dive into the science and engineering that will lead to solar and energy storage technologies the world needs and wants.”
Connie Bourassa-Shaw, Director of the Buerk Center for Entrepreneurship, will introduce us to the UW Environmental Innovation Challenge and the Center’s Jones + Foster Accelerator for student-led start-ups. Recent grads Ryan Vogel and Adam Greenberg, who won second place at the EIC and the $25,000 grand prize at the annual Business Plan Competition, will take you through their PureBlue Technology start-up adventure. And Chris DeVore, the chief troublemaker at Seattle’s TechStars, will explain how he’s working with the UW real estate office to turn the old law school building on Campus Parkway into a foothold for tech entrepreneurs. The University District is changing!
