Simonyi Center Innovation & Commercialization Summer Initiatives Launched

June 15, 2015 / Posted by News in News

The 8th Annual Summer Innovation & Commercialization Initiatives Launched June 13 with the arrival of US Professionals, Executive Mentors from California’s Silicon Valley, and Students from Ohio.  The initiatives partner with Hungarian Start-ups, Entrepreneurs, Research & Innovation, and Students from University of Pecs to turn ideas into opportunities and then into the commercial market place.  This world class program has been recognized as the model for commercialization in under served areas such as Hungary and other areas of Eastern Europe that lack a capital continuum.  The model has been widely used in the United States and the Simonyi Center has assisted with the implementation in India, Nicaragua, Botswana, and Slovakia.   More information to follow as the program progresses.

“Prior to this program, I had no experience in the field of business consulting. I never realized others could have such a different point of view on every aspect of life. Without this experience, I would have never considered that my business knowledge could help the progression of science technology. It completely changed my outlook.”

- Eszter Major, Alumna, University of Pécs

"Before participating in the Simonyi Center I was unsure where or what I would be working on. My background is in business planning and launching start-up's, so I knew I could provide assistance to both the students and businesses. After participating I am blown away and totally impressed by the student-client interaction, immediate student team bonding and end result presentations of the student projects. It was a heartwarming experience to see such a positive and successful collaboration from so many international perspectives."
