The Yale Innovation Summit offers a premier opportunity to showcase breakthrough Yale technologies to a large number of interested investors and industry leaders, both through a prominent electronic poster display with interactive screens and through a Biotech and Tech Pitch Contest with cash prizes of up to $5,000. This year, e-poster participants will also have the opportunity to also give a short pitch on a stage in the Evans Hall Courtyard.
*Please note: Strong preference will be given to founders with a current Yale affiliation spinning a technology out of Yale, but consideration may be extended to alumni or community startups based on availability. Prior year pitch contestants are welcome to present a poster, but will not be considered for the pitch contests to give others an opportunity.
Applications are closed for e-Poster Session & Pitch Contests.
Electronic posters will be displayed throughout the event in the outdoor event space at Evans Hall where lunch is served. Investors and industry leaders are encouraged to circulate and speak to investigators. $500 cash prize for best Biotech poster and best Tech Poster.
