Mark your calendars! The 6th Annual University Research & Entrepreneurship Symposium 2013 (URES) will be held on April 3, 2013 at The Microsoft New England Research & Development Center in Cambridge, MA.

URES is an invitation-only one-day conference established to bring world-class technologies from universities to Boston to showcase them before a group of New Englands top entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. The event will feature breakthrough technologies in three focus areas information technology, deep technology and life sciences.

Over the past 5 years, 110 projects nearly 40 universities – including Boston University, Brown, Carnegie Mellon, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, MIT, NYU, Purdue, Rensselaer Polytechnic, Tufts, UCLA, University of Kansas, University of Pennsylvania, University of Wisconsin, and Yale –have presented to entrepreneurs and venture capitalists at the event resulting in 13 companies receiving nearly $100 million in funding to date.

URES is presented by three leading venture capital firms ~ Flybridge Capital Partners, Atlas Venture, and General Catalyst Partners along with sponsor Goodwin Procter and partner organizations NCET2 and Microsoft New England Research and Development Center. The one-day symposium has been designed to explore the challenges and opportunities faced by university-based entrepreneurs that are commercializing university-owned technology or starting companies while at the same time exposing New Englands top venture capitalists and entrepreneurs to leading research universities beyond the Boston area.
