As part of the university's commitment to economic development and outreach, CTL hosts a variety of events to create connections between the Cornell campuses, industry members, entrepreneurs, and investors.
CCTEC hosted its third annual Cornell Technology Venture Forum™ (CTVF) on October 22, 2009. Attendees gathered to hear eleven oral presentations. Five Cornell inventors shared their emerging technologies including a microfluidic device for drug evaluation, commensal microbes engineered to be signal monitors and responders inside the body, cancer metatasis prevention, nanoparticles for minimally invasive prostate cancer therapy, and scaling video games for better playing experiences. Six Cornell startups, including Orthogonal, ZetrOZ, Prendismo, Glycobia, Adenios, and Vybion pitched their businesses to investors, industry representatives, and Cornell community leaders.
The East Hill Office Building Atrium was filled with posters of information technology, veterinary medicine, drug development, cancer treatment, agriculture, medical devices, and MEMS. Attendees made useful business contacts and met potential collaborators during the poster viewing sessions and a networking lunch.

The inaugural Technology Innovation Gala reception was held to recognize Cornell faculty innovators whose research results have been licensed to industry partners for commercial development since January 2007. More than 150 guests including faculty innovators and their guests, industry representatives, university Trustees, community leaders, investors, and university senior administrators gathered to celebrate the faculty innovators accomplishments. Cornell Provost, W. Kent Fuchs, and Senior Vice Provost for Research, Robert Buhrman, also toasted and presented to Professor Watt Webb the 2009 Ezra Technology Innovator Award for his invention, “Multiphoton Microscopy Systems”, in recognition of the invention’s impact on the advancement of biological science research.
The Technology Innovation Gala will be a biennial event to celebrate the success and dedication of Cornell innovators who are committed to making the results of their research useful to benefit the public.
