Director Peter A. Jackman will be speaking on the panel "Overcoming Barriers to Commercialization" during the 2020 Algae Biomass Summit on Thursday, September 24, 2020 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. EDT. The full agenda for the conference can be found here.
As the algae industry grows and expands, there are important hurdles that must be understood for any company to obtain success. Going from idea to proof of concept to product to market is not always a straight, horizontal line; in fact, it almost NEVER is. You have a fabulous idea, a working, scientifically sound technology, but you did not pay attention to the regulations, technical standards, or capital needed to get to market. The algae industry no longer suffers primarily from a science and technology problem; it suffers from business problems. This exemplary panel will delve into regulatory, financing, and technical standards for algae products, services, and technology, demystifying the bureaucracy and teaching you how to navigate these waters in order to help lead our industry to successful commercialization.
