Our annual Invention 2 Venture (I2V) Conference pulls together dynamic experts, academic researchers, students, entrepreneurs and business leaders from across Vermont and New England to talk about how to protect, develop and finance your ideas.

Anthony Boccanfuso: Triple Helix for the Win!
Being a successful research organization requires collaborations, since no one has the resources and skills to tackle the global grand challenges by themselves. This session will consider how some organizations are partnering to address this opportunity and what governments are doing to leverage academic, corporate and nonprofit institutions to solve big challenges we face
