COLLEGE STATION – John Sharp, chancellor of The Texas A&M University System, has initiated the launch of an Investment Showcase featuring the latest discoveries and newest companies using Texas A&M System technology and research.
The inaugural showcase was held Thursday, Sept. 13 at Miramont Country Club in Bryan, Texas, and focused on bringing Texas A&M System companies together with potential investors and partners for commercialization.
“I am very excited to host this event and create the potential for life-changing ideas to become a reality,” said Sharp. “The state’s largest research university should take a leadership role in bettering the lives of people all over this planet.
“Texans see and use products based on Texas A&M research every day. Products ranging from improved cotton in the clothes we wear, to traffic guardrails that save thousands of lives, to improved wheat varieties that improve the profitability of Texas farmers. The Innovation Showcase is a glimpse into the future – a future driven by Texas A&M research and commercialization,” Sharp said.
More than 110 guests and investors were registered for attendance Thursday.
