High-tech startups: A bonanza for entrepreneurs Sept. 26-28
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 7, 2007) − If you've been thinking about starting a high-tech business, here's your chance to learn from some of the veterans of the industry.
Sponsored by the University of Kentucky Center for Clinical and Translational Science and the Gill Foundation of Texas, "High-tech startups: A bonanza for entrepreneurs" is a three-day course featuring frank, one-on-one discussion with people who have already navigated their way to successful businesses. Jack Gill leads the course with more than 35 years of experience in highly profitable business ventures in Silicon Valley, New England and Texas. Since 2000, Gill has founded and developed new entrepreneur centers, curriculum and courses at Harvard and other top universities. Ten years ago, Gill and his wife, Linda, founded UK HealthCare's Linda and Jack Gill Heart Institute with a $5 million donation, one of the largest single gifts the university has received.
Founders of Cyberonics, Lexicon Genetics and ChaCha Search will present case studies on their companies on the the third day, in conjunction with the 2007 University of Kentucky Clinical and Translational Science Fall Conference on the third floor of the Lexington Center, 430 Vine Street.
