BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TechConnect Summit, the world’s largest forum dedicated to showcasing prescreened, advanced technologies and early stage companies specifically in nanotech, cleantech and biotech/medical devices announces the posting of the final program.

During the Summit, dozens of presenters of early-stage companies and technologies meet with large corporations and investors to match-up funding or partnering opportunities. Attendees and presenters at the Summit will also hear exclusively from large corporations—Fortune 500 companies involved in cleantech, nanotech, and/or life sciences-- about their present and future technology needs, as well as their technology investment areas of interest.
The annual TechConnect Summit is the world's largest event for peer-vetted deal flow, making it ideal for early stage companies looking for funding or partnerships, investors looking for new opportunities that have already been filtered for quality and opportunity, and corporations looking to invite highly qualified scientists, engineers and researchers to help them develop solutions to specific needs.
“This year’s Summit will feature several exciting industry session tracks for featured IPs and Early Stage Companies, ranging from Solar Energy to Nano Materials to Biotech & Pharma,” said Jennifer Rocha, TechConnect Program Director. “TechConnect will once again be co-located with NSTI Nanotech and CSI CleanTechnology conferences, providing unique synergies between the conference attendees that one can only find at our event.”
