June 16, 2009
Assistive technology innovators, educators, investors, and users are invited to attend the Center for Assistive Technology (CAT) Entrepreneurs' Bootcamp on August 6, 2009, at the Indianapolis Convention Center, 100 South Capitol St. Indianapolis, IN 46225. This bootcamp will run as a part of the Statewide Assistive Technology Conference and Exhibition hosted by INDATA. The bootcamp is free to anyone wishing to attend, but registration is requested as space is limited.
This bootcamp is targeted to the innovator and will help you whether you are raising funds, building your product or gathering your team. Experienced professional investors, venture professionals and valuation experts will provide an informative backdrop for developing assistive technologies. This workshop will help you whether you are raising funds, building your product or gathering your team.
Innovators of technologies to assist those with disabilities or special learning needs often find limited opportunities to collaborate with others due to the lack of connection between those doing the innovation and those developing products. You will have the opportunity to form and strengthen relationships with other like-minded dedicated individuals. All involved with assistive technologies are invited to attend this bootcamp whether your input is in the area of creating, using or working with others on assistive technologies.
The Center for Assistive Technology hosted the first Entrepreneurs' Bootcamp in April at Purdue's Discovery Park. CAT is a subcenter of the Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering at Purdue University and is funded by the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration. The Entrepreneurs' Bootcamp is co-sponsored by Easter Seals.
