Global Lab to Market Forum

A two-day event in December 2016 presented models of successful innovation in developing countries and engendered discussion on how to meet the circumstances unique to Egypt. Organized by the innovation non-profit, VentureWell, expert speakers convened to present on innovation-related topics such as technology transfer, commercialization, incubation, and entrepreneurial capacity building in science and technology.


Alumni of the U.S.-Egypt S&T Joint Fund provided input on their research under the program and its connection to commercialization efforts. Members of the Egyptian science and technology community from a wide variety of organizations took part in working groups organized along particular themes. This helped spark ideas for successful commercialization in Egypt.
