UEDA 2015 Annual Summit - 9/28 - Afternoon Keynote Addresses


Published on

In 2007, the Kauffman Foundation for Entrepreneurship launched the iBridgeNetwork with an eye toward supporting the marketing efforts of university technology transfer offices. The Innovation Accelerator Foundation assumes control of the iBridgeNetwork, and is recrafting it under a new vision: to become a university-centric virtual innovation ecosystem. In the keynote address of the 2015 UEDA summit, iBridgeNetwork founder John Pyrovolakis will provide a “sneak peak” into this vision in action. The iBridgeNetwork welcomes your help in shaping the iBridgeNetwork’s future.
John Pyrovolakis, Founder & CEO, Innovation Accelerator
