Description

Perspectives on the pathway from invention to value delivery: A moderated discussion from the startup and investor perspective.


Join us for an engaging evening with two distinguished members of Houston’s energy technology and innovation scene, as we explore the challenges faced in bringing innovative technologies from conceptual ideas to commercial reality. Our guests will share their experiences and insights drawn from successful ventures and some great ideas that just didn’t work out, will contribute their thoughts on greatest unmet needs for inventors to tackle today. Their personal stories will help illuminate the importance of incorporating customer input early in the innovation process, and in focusing not only on inventing a product or technology, but on “inventing” a business which is valuable to both customers and investors.

Please participate in moving our Houston Innovation Ecosystem forward by sponsoring one of the many events from SPE-GCS Innovate committee. Your sponsorship funds our events for the members to network with other inspiring Innovators and Entrepreneurs in the Energy Industry.

All profit from our activities benefits the SPE-GCS Scholarship Endowment Fund.
