Steve Socolof moderated a cleantech panel for the NJ EDA, including Eric Breese of Evonik, Keryl Cosenzo of Siemens, Doug Kushnerik of ExxonMobil, and Keally DeWitt of GAF Energy.

Steve Socolof moderated a NJ EDA Roundtable: New Jersey’s Clean Tech Innovation Ecosystem: What Role Should Big Corporates Play on December 5, 2019.  Many important technological advances in cleantech have been the work of startup companies and research universities. Large, well established companies also play a very substantial—if less well publicized—role as innovators in the field. The roundtable explored the cleantech contributions global companies are making here in New Jersey, and ways in which they may be able to play an even larger role in the state’s cleantech innovation ecosystem.  Panel included Keally DeWitt, Sr. Director, Marketing and Public Policy, GAF Energy (Parsippany), Eric Breese, Venture Capital Investment Director, Evonik Inc. (Parsippany), Doug Kushnerick, Sr. Scientific Advisor, ExxonMobil Research (Clinton and Paulsboro), and Keryl Cosenzo, Head, Government Research Programs, Siemens Corporate Technology (Princeton)

Moderator: Steve Socolof, Managing Partner, Tech Council Ventures, and Founding Head of Lucent Technologies New Ventures Group

Join us for the Boehringer Ingelheim Academy & Networking Reception

Wednesday, November 16 | 4:30–7:30 p.m.
Panel Discussion: “How to Build an Effective Company From Academics — How Is This Trend Reflected in NJ, and How Can It Be Accelerated?”


Boehringer Ingelheim Academy
Boehringer Ingelheim’s Grass Roots activities are centered around developing a personal relationship with the companies they work with. And their Academy sessions provide an informal opportunity for early-stage life science companies to network with other bio-entrepreneurs as well as hear from Boehringer Ingelheim business development, scientific and commercial leaders and some of their partners and key opinion leaders.

There are many factors that are involved in building an effective company out of an idea from academia. There needs to be an assessment of the potential for impact, a business plan needs to be created, investors need to be found, as well as other considerations.

The topic for this Academy will focus on this life science startup trend out of academia in New Jersey and discuss ways to attempt to perform this successfully and in a potentially accelerated way.

Panelists are:
• Scott DeWire, PhD, US Head of BD&L, Boehringer Ingelheim (moderator)
• Patrik Erlmann, PhD, US Head of Research Beyond Borders, Boehringer Inghelheim
• Zemer Gitai, PhD, Professor, Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University
• Jim Gunton, Managing Partner, Tech Council Ventures, NJ
• Fei Shen, PhD, Managing Director, Boehringer Ingelheim Venture Fund USA, Inc.

Registration is free here.
