TECH TRANSFER CONSULTANCY

The McCrory administration put together an all-star list of leaders in venture funding, technology and university R&D to form its “Moving Forward on the Innovation Triangle” plan. And the proposal outlined by Gov. Pat McCrory on Friday shows considerable promise, obviously reflecting the talent on the panel.… [It’s] an impressive group. DeSimone and Jablokov are successful entrepreneurs. LeVert and [Fuentek’s Laura] Schoppe make their living finding ways to evolve R&D into business. Lomax has a strong record of achievement at NCSU. Thorp, Cambier and Mumma know VC inside-out. If this plan can unravel the Gordian Knot that is tech transfer, the Triangle and the entire state will continue to grow as a hub of innovation.
