Early Stage Venture Financing for America’s Technology Entrepreneurs

 

New Hampshire ranks 22nd in total federal dollars awarded to small companies that have early-stage and high risk technologies with high potential for commercialization.  Through the federal Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs, New Hampshire companies have received over $425M since the program’s inception.

UNH and Avalon Promotions Announce a Commitment to Healthy Eating

UNH signed a license with Avalon Promotions on July 31, 2013 for a copyrighted image developed by Healthy UNH and UNH Dining Services, aptly called the UNH Wildcat Plate. In 2010, the USDA created Dietary Guidelines for Americans, to help remind them to think about their food choices in order to lead healthier lifestyles.

Attending the LES University - Strategic Licensing: Advanced Tools and Practices

I recently attended the Licensing Executives Society (LES) University course on Strategic Licensing: Advanced Tools and Practices.
