The Physics Startup
(How to get millions of dollars to play around in the lab!)
Dr. Steven Deiker
Silicon Valley is immersed in startup culture. The news and gossip around these companies forms a constant background in the media. Most of the startups we hear about revolve around software, but the same business culture is routinely applied to form science-based companies.
The knowledge, skills and problem-solving techniques physicists use on a daily basis are directly applicable to startups of all sorts. By combining these two cultures, rapid progress can be made on important and fascinating problems. We will discuss this cultural overlap and the opportunities it produces.
