Session Abstract

Two startups, with the support of unique university incubation programs, are using innovative technology and forward thinking teams to revolutionize two very different industries. Philo, Inc. is bringing IPTV to colleges and universities, to allow students on campus to watch live TV and more on their laptops and mobile devices. With the help of the Harvard Innovation Lab, Philo is now the TV service of choice at schools spanning the US. AweSim, from the Ohio Supercomputer Center, has provided engineers at small-to-medium-sized manufacturers with a cost-effective, small-footprint solution to their modeling and simulation needs. With web-based apps that harness supercomputing resources and accessibility via their high speed network, AweSim is delivering reduced costs, improved prototyping and increased speed-to-market - all through an e-commerce marketplace.

Pankaj Shah and Alan Chalker from the AweSim program, Tuan Ho, founder of Philo, and Gordon Jones, the Managing Director of the Harvard Innovation Lab, will discuss the ways universities have successfully supported invention and entrepreneurship and how they can continue to improve these collaborations in the future.
