Cornell University

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.

CTVF 2012



CCTEC hosted its sixth annual Cornell Technology Venture Forum™ (CTVF) on October 25, 2012 in the East Hill Office Building Training Room and Atrium (395 Pine Tree Road, Ithaca, NY). Emerging technologies and Cornell startups were presented and showcased throughout the day-long event. Ample networking and poster viewing breaks allowed attendees to mingle and form useful business relationships.

Posters filled the East Hill Office Building Atrium during the event. Inventors were on hand to discuss potential partnerships and opportunities. Cornell startups and emerging technologies that participated are listed below.
