The Wildcatalyst Seminars (formerly named Catalyst Seminars) are held on the 4th Thursday of every month from September through May at the Alpha Loft, 21 Madbury Road, Durham. Presentations begin at 4:30PM followed by beer and networking from 5:30-6:30PM. These events are FREE and open to the public.
For March’s Wildcatalyst Seminar, we will be discussing the development of effective and valuable university/industry strategic partnerships.
University/industry partnerships have a host of mutual benefits like increased student involvement, new educational opportunities, product development, industry growth, and economic development. We’ve asked UNH’s own sr. director of strategic partnerships Ellen Christo and Peter Egelston, owner of Smuttynose Brewing Company to lead the conversation as they share their recent experiences working together to brew and launch a beer in celebration of UNH’s 150th anniversary and talk about their collaborative efforts to build and strengthen UNH’s capacity to support NH fast-growing craft beer industry.
They will discuss:
- Initiating strategic partnerships
- Key issues at different stages of the partnership journey
- Mutual benefits
- Overcoming common challenges
- Key lessons learned
- Opportunities moving forward
- And more!
