COIN to launch NanoMatchGlobal services at COMS 2011
(Nanowerk News) The Center of Innovation for Nanobiotechnology (COIN) today announces the launch of NanoMatchGlobal™ Services at the upcoming COMS 2011 conference. NanoMatchGlobal is a structured, exclusive networking opportunity connecting leaders in nanotechnology. This forum lowers barriers to access executives and entrepreneurs, removing serendipity from traditional networking. Connectivity to high-quality leaders in a tailored setting allows targeted entry into the nanotech ecosystem, providing access to well-connected entrepreneurs, innovators at the leading edge of technology development, and decision-making industry executives.
NanoMatchGlobal will be offered from 4-6pm on Tuesday, August 30th (visit www.nanobiotech.org/nanomatchglobal). Registered COMS attendees can sign up for 15-minute sessions with experts in nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine, energy and cleantech, MEMS and electronics, defense and aerospace, nanomanufacturing, and investment. Confirmed VIPs include executives from Novo Nordisk, Cisco, RTI, TIMCO, Pappas Ventures, Southeast Tech Inventures, North Carolina Aerospace Alliance, UNC Chapel Hill, Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, NC Sustainable Energy Association, the North Carolina Department of Commerce, Liquidia, among others..
By bringing together groups of complementary talent, with synergistic interests, NanoMatchGlobal is a platform to initiate long-term relationships that drive near-term value ranging from exchange of ideas to collaborations and deals. Strategic meetings can provide access to what you need, even if what you need is not well-defined.
NanoMatchGlobal will be held at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC. The NanoMatchGlobal session is generously sponsored by Smith Anderson, Prasidiux, and RTI International. The COMS conference is coordinated by MANCEF. To register for this conference, please visit the conference website.
COIN is coordinating additional content at COIN, including "Global Overview of Small Technology" session (Monday August 29th, 10:30am-12:30pm), the "Investor Forum" (Tuesday August 30th, 3:30-5:00pm), the "NanoBio & Nanomedicine Convergence" (Wednesday August 31st, 8:45-10:30am) session, and the "Nanotechnology in Products: Pitfalls and Success in the Path to a Commercial Product" (Wednesday August 31st, 11:00am-12:30pm) session.
COIN is a nonprofit organization that accelerates commercialization of nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine to enable economic growth and improve human life. North Carolina is a leader in these fields and in related new product innovation and entrepreneurship. Established with funding from the NC Biotechnology Center, COIN represents a targeted state resource to encourage development of commercial applications of nanobiotechnology in key life science and medical product sectors. COIN provides a framework to boost the profile, funding, and management of the important work occurring in nanobiotechnology in the state, with the ultimate goal being commercialization. COIN's programs and services address key issues of its clients such as early-stage funding, preclinical testing, technology scouting, and industry partnering.
