Growth Hacking Unicorns with Government-Funded R&D

The US spends ~$150 billion/year on R&D; sadly, only .05% of inventions see the light of day. Based on a Kauffman study, if 6% more inventions made it out with only a 10% successful commercialization rate, the US could gain $1.5 trillion in GDP growth. Imagine launching a company that, from Day 1, has IP with millions of dollars of research backing. Rosemarie Truman and her partners have unlocked 280+ inventions and will share the missing formula for turning government-funded tech into billion-dollar startups. Join her and "Superstars of Think Tank Scholar" Ross DeVol in a discussion to uncover these secrets and more!
