SilviaTerra co-founder Max Nova spoke at Yale yesterday to a group of current undergraduate and MBA students in the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute's summer startup incubator program. He walked the YEI Fellows through the process of taking technology from the lab to the real world.
SilviaTerra's patented technology came from co-founder Zack Parisa's work in Dr. Chad Oliver's lab at the Yale School of Forestry. SilviaTerra was one of the first ever student-led companies to license intellectual property from Yale, and Max discussed some of the main challenges of turning an academic research project into an industrial-strength, efficient, scalable process.
Seven years ago, SilviaTerra went through the YEI summer program too! We're very grateful for the support and mentorship we've received from the university and are always excited to pay it forward to the next generation of student entrepreneurs.
