Matt Smith, Partner & COO TandemLaunch
The innovation economy is one that emphasizes entrepreneurship and is becoming an increasingly dominant driver of economic development. University-led research remains a relatively untapped source of world-disrupting innovation as the path from invention to industry is a treacherous one. Matt Smith, COO of the TandemLaunch consumer electronics startup incubator in Montreal, will share stories about the companies that have been borne out of university ingenuity. Learn about what makes a great entrepreneur and how to avoid the traps that most often lead to failure.
