W. L. Gore & Associates Seeks Material Innovations for a Sustainable Future

Deadline: May 21, 2019

W.L. Gore & Associates has recently launched a Sustainability Initiative to explore business opportunities that will create a more sustainable future. They are interested in meeting and exploring ideas to work together with startups that have created innovative material technologies that fit the theme of a sustainable future across a broad range of application areas.  In particular, they are seeking new material advancements in cleantech (such as membranes), catalysis, separations and biofabrication.

There will be opportunities for interested, and relevant, parties to meet with Gore in the very near future. A small team from Gore’s Core Technology group will be on campus on various days between May 28th and June 7th for meetings.

 

* Note this is a meeting opportunity, meaning there may or may not be a defined project as of the meeting.  The purpose of the meeting is mutual discovery: for you to learn about the company's problem and for them to learn about your products and services.  If there's mutual match, that could lead to more.
