Oregon's Lab2Market merges world-class university-based innovation with the practical lessons of the marketplace. Through a two-day intensive workshop, university entrepreneurs and innovators refine their business concepts with hands-on help from venture capitalists and startup mentors. The event culminates in a pitch competition judged by investors and business experts, where prizes are awarded.
2013 Lab2Market pitch winner, Trevor Levin, Research Fellow at OHSU, said of the workshop: "Thank you for a great experience at Lab2Market. I’ve attended a number of entrepreneur related events and this one takes the top. Really well organized, great lecturers, and inspiring to spend time with other creative people pitching business ideas. It was also very helpful to get so much feedback on the presentation of the elevator pitch."
