The world's top Vetted Innovations matched with the world's top Corporate & Investment Partners

Connecting the Business Technology Community
Nanotech     Microtech    Biotech    Cleantech

The TechConnect World is the world's largest multi-disciplinary multi-sector conference and marketplace of vetted innovations, innovators and technology business developers and funders. The TechConnect World houses four world-class technical events focused on advancements in Nanotech, Microtech, Biotech, Cleantech and the technology overlap between these converging domains. As technologies commercially mature from the purely research stage, they are advanced into the TechConnect Summit and partnering programs in which IP and Early-stage companies are reviewed and selected by our board of corporate and investment partners.

Through our events and strategic partners, TechConnect increases the innovation pipeline, helps partners find new licensing and business opportunities, and matches corporate and investment partners to top vetted technologies from around the world.

TechConnect World 2012 will take place June 18-21, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.
