Dr. Tilla Worgall Shares Experience at Columbia Startup Festival Panel
On April 6, 2018, Columbia Startup Festival featured a panel called “Spinning Out, In Control”. Sponsored by Columbia's Women Inventors Network and by Women in Science @ Columbia this discussion took a deep dive into the tale of three scientists' journey from innovation to spinout, as well as what life is like at the intersection of university research and the commercial sector. Most importantly, this panel shares lessons learned from this experience with the younger generation of women inventors.
The panelists were Michal Lipson who leads the Lipson Nanophotonics Group, Tilla Worgall whose diagnostics startup received venture backing, and Angela Christiano whose current research focuses on understanding the molecular processes that lead to inherited skin and hair disorders in humans. Each has developed impressive IP portfolios, commercial engagement, and spinouts from their labs.
