Innovation and Tech Transfer in Start-ups
John LeMoncheck [President and Chief Executive Officer, SiBEAM]
ABSTRACT:
Many start-ups are founded on the premise that some fabulous new advance in technology will create a significant enough advantage for the small company to out-pace its larger competitors in an existing market or have the new idea be so compelling that it will make a market for itself. Are these solutions in search of a problem truly enough to overcome the tremendous obstacles a small company faces along the way? The role of a go-to-market strategy and creation of an eco-system for the product to be sold into is often undervalued by technologist-founders as they attempt to take their invention from the lab to the consumer. The SiBEAM case will be presented as an example of taking a nascent technology through the various steps from lab to shelf and how having an integrated technology and market development strategy were critical to SiBEAMs success.
