Fishing for Partners?
This session will present how partnerships between university innovation centers and external partners are created and cultivated. The university perspective will be represented by both the mature ecosystem existing at Stanford and a relatively new innovation center at Texas Tech. The external partner perspective will be represented from the global perspective of Facebook and the local perspective of the Lubbock Economic Development Alliance. The session is designed to offer those in attendance multiple perspectives on how to build synergistic partnerships between university innovation centers and external partners of varying scale and mission.Presenters
