Event Preview

Many technologists develop a measurement technique: a sensor, or an instrument that might be very useful in monitoring or controlling an industrial process. But how do you venture out onto the factory floor and find your market? Should you build a few copies of an instrument and then create a service that uses your instrumentation and techniques? Or should you try to sell an instrument as a product right off the bat? Or, perhaps you should work with an OEM to be a small part of bigger quality control systems? How do you make sophisticated instruments without billion-dollar fab investments? The February Entrepreneurs Forum will address these topics and more. Come hear how others have navigated these choices…and how it has worked out for them.
