Research Universities Should Be Better at Startups

Mar 12, 2017

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

University of Texas at Austin President Greg Fenves and Professor of Innovation Bob Metcalfe will interview one another on how research universities might evolve further to create more opportunities for faculty and students to found successful startups. Such startups can flourish in an “inoversity” setting that can change the world by maximizing the impacts of discoveries and inventions.
