The event will feature presentations by VCs, scientists, academics, & Tim Draper on how startup universities can create new models for applied research & commercialization to rejuvenate Americas innovation pipeline.nProgramn3:00pm - 3:30pm: VC Panel, Whos Funding Innovative R&D?nUniversities are no longer go-to places for cutting-edge research initiatives. What changed? Where is major investment capital now allocated? Academia & VC firms need to rethink how they work together in order to accelerate & commercialize R&D at a faster rate. High regulation, high CapEx, fewer buildersthere is so much to discuss!nModerator: Suffiyan Malik & Panelists: Mike Maples, Anurag Chandra, & Sebastian Calirinn3:30pm - 3:45pm : Launching STEM at a Startup UniversitynThe key to creating a university STEM program from scratch is leveraging relationships with private industry.

By contrast, UATX is creating new models for applied research & aggressive commercialization in the most important areas for innovation, geopolitically: quantum computing, Space Tech, AI, & cryptocurrencies. What advice does Tim Draper have for UATX as it looks to fill the gap?nPresenters:nTim Draper: Founder of DraperU & Keri Waters: CINO at UATXnn5:00pm - 6:00pm: Networking Reception
