You Don't have to be in your 20's to be an Entrepreneur! - Coming November 15, 2018

You've worked for a while in an area you are very familiar with and have some terrific ideas on improvement.

You are working in an area you are restless in - and want to start your own business with great ideas you have collected over the years.

You are now retired after years in the business with plenty of time to think about those ideas you've had and see if indeed, you could market them.

How do you know if the idea you have is marketable?  How do you know if the risk is worth it? How do you attract capital? How would you go from the "idea" to the “product”?  

This workshop is geared toward assisting you in deciding if this concept is worth pursuing.  Come hear from entrepreneurs who have succeeded and how they decided to move forward with their conceptions. Hear from financiers as to what they are looking for. Hear from business people on how to get going on a business plan.

Come hear about how to take the Next Step – with SBU Economic Development here to help you! 

The event is free – but registration in required.  Register today as there is limited space.

Long Island Innovation Boot Camp

March 22, 23 & 30, 2017

The Long Island Innovation Boot Camp was initiated at Stony Brook University to propel ideas past these barriers to new venture creation.  The two and a half day event teams experienced patent attorneys, business professionals and MBA students with the researchers around whose patented technologies new companies might be built.  The teams work hands-on through a series of modules structured to probe the commercial potential of a technology, ending with presentations to a panel of entrepreneurs and early stage investors.  The researchers/inventors walk away with the answers to two threshold questions: Can this technology become a saleable product, and do I want to be the entrepreneur who builds a company around it?

Since its inception in 2008, the Boot Camp – the Long Island event of the Pre-Seed Workshop (www.preseedworkshop.com), originated by Mark Wilson and Judy Albers – has analyzed over sixty technologies with the help of more than 130 regional professionals, and assisted in the formation of numerous technology start-up companies on Long Island.  The Boot Camp’s annual kickoff event is held in conjunction with the Long Island Technology Hall of Fame dinner every March to introduce the technology entrepreneurs of the future to their most successful predecessors.
