The conference entitled “Developing a Technology Business: Bioscience”, is hosted by the University of Wyoming’s Technology Business Center.

“The conference that we’re going to have is a Thursday evening dinner with a keynote speaker and networking. Then on Friday morning we have different types of people involved in technology that are going to talk about how they developed their businesses, how they found funding for it, how they put together the product and built a team, and what their exit strategies are.”

John Benson, is CEO of WTBC and he says while the focus of the conference is on developing a bio-science related business, any technology start-up would benefit.

The two-day conference includes a panel of presenters sharing their stories of business start-up in some aspect of bio-science, from medical technology and software, to plant and agriculture sciences. Benson says this conference will also be the first for the Wyoming Business Technology Center’s networking educational system called “e2e”. The e2e program, he says, brings together entrepreneurs, ” to help them get to know each other,  to facilitate starting and growing a business, and we also provide counseling to early stage companies.  Through the counseling we hope we help them grow larger and faster than they would otherwise.”

Cost for the conference is included in membership in e2e. The event next Thursday and Friday, July 28-29, takes place at Laramie’s Hilton Garden Inn.
