November's Wildcatalyst Seminar: Launching (Research-Based) Start-Ups: From Saturn to Your Smartphone
November 16th, 2017

We are very excited to have Dr. Eric Fossum, Professor and Associate Provost for Entrepreneurship and Technology Transfer at Dartmouth College as our guest speaker for November’s Wildcatalyst Seminar. Dr. Fossum is a serial entrepreneur, a U.S. National Inventors Hall of Fame inductee, and holds over 160 U.S. patents.

While working for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the 1990s, he invented the CMOS image sensor which is used today in billions of cameras around the world, including smartphones, webcams, and medical devices. Dr. Fossum co-founded Photobit Corporation in 1995 to commercialize the technology and served in several top management roles including Chairman and CEO. The company was acquired by Micron Technology in the early 2000s. More recently, he and his students formed Gigajot Technology to commercialize photon-counting image-sensor technology invented at Dartmouth.

In this seminar, Dr. Fossum will discuss his successful career in academic and government research and entrepreneurial leadership and will share his experience and expertise in translating ideas and innovation into real and useful products.
