MANHASSET, N.Y. — The inaugural TechConnect 2006 Summit scheduled for May 8-9 at Boston’s Hynes Convention Center will seek to bring together promising IP and startup companies.

TechConnect applies the academic peer-review process to business vetting procedure as a way to identify the best global IP and technology opportunities. The annual event aims to create a venue for innovators and early stage companies in which they are able to meet directly with investors and enterprises.

“A major challenge for both the technology and the financial communities is finding a forum in which all parties can interact and explore possibilities for future innovation,” Matthew Laudon, co-Founder and director of TechConnect, said in a statement. “TechConnect was created to fill this void, bringing both sides together under one roof into a setting that ultimately will help significant groundbreaking concepts come to life.”

The summit will focus on automotive, electronics, energy, media, chemicals, food and the health care industries.

The summit will run concurrently with Nanotech 2006 and BioNano 2006. Interested parties can submit information on the IP or the venture to the TechConnect 2006 Web site.

TechConnect Advisory Board members include researchers from Boston University, Georgia Tech, University of California and University of Illinois and executives from Analog Devices, Cisco, Intel, Motorola and Sanyo.
