The Purdue Foundry says its FoundryX initiative has attracted more than 50 mentors to provide support to early-stage Purdue startups. The entrepreneurship and commercialization hub has also announced the first FoundryX networking and tech showcase.
FoundryX aims to connect Purdue startups and innovations that are available to license with industry leaders and business experts, with a goal of bringing new technologies to market. Among the effort’s mentors is The Startup Ladies and indyfeminist.com founder Kristen Cooper. She says working with FoundryX "allows us to strengthen collaborations between startup communities and help grow the number of women-owned businesses."
The initiative’s first networking and tech showcase event is set for Tuesday, January 26 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at Launch Fishers. The Foundry says there is no charge to attend, but space is limited.
