In true Shark Tank fashion, a review panel composed of entrepreneurs, investors, financiers, and state economic development specialists will critique and evaluate each pitch on how compelling their technology is as a game-changing innovation.

New Mexico Angels and the New Mexico Startup Factory President John Chavez said that DisrupTech gives potential investors, companies, regional business leaders, and policymakers a rare inside look at the disruptive technology under development at Los Alamos and can help transition their ideas into the technologies that lead to new solutions.

“Seasoned early-stage investors know that you can’t wait until technology is deemed ‘market ready.’ You have to create relationships with scientists who are working on technology in your industry and area of interest. Those who attend DisrupTech will be the first to see and experience the work of the featured Los Alamos scientists in highly relevant technology areas, and have the first shot at engaging in tech transfer opportunities through the Feynman Center,” Chavez said.

In addition to showcasing technology, Los Alamos also seeks to ignite more entrepreneurial activities among its scientists. Said Feynman Center Director David Pesiri, “Our scientists are among the nation’s brightest minds. They are challenged to solve the major issues facing the world today. DisrupTech is an uncommon opportunity for leaders from private industry review and inform our scientists.”

Tickets to DisrupTech are $35 and include the presentations and networking reception. They can be purchased online atwww.LANLDisrupTech.com.
