In this talk, Founder and Managing Director of Invisible-Light Labs, Josiane P. Lafleur, will share the journey of how bringing a new deep-tech technology from laboratory experiment to viable product can be a long and challenging process. Josiane will share Invisible-Light Labs’ experience in translating academic research to market, how they obtained the necessary funding to do so, and recount the hardships and obstacles they faced along the way.
Josiane P. Lafleur holds a doctorate degree in chemistry from McGill University (Canada). She worked for several years in research and academia, first as a postdoctoral fellow at the Technical University of Denmark and then as an Assistant Professor at the University of Copenhagen (Denmark). In 2018, she decided to take the plunge and co-founded the TU Wien spin-off Invisible-Light Labs GmbH. The aim of Invisible-Light Labs is to bring radically new infrared sensing technology out of the confines of the laboratory, to the market where it can have a positive impact on our society.
The Founder & Investor Talks, organized by the Innovation Incubation Center (i²c) at TU Wien, enable the audience to learn firsthand from experienced founders, investors and innovators, and get inspired by their success (and failure) stories. Our guest speakers share their international experiences, dos & don’ts and lessons learned during an inspiring talk. Afterwards, the participants can ask all the burning questions during an interactive Q&A.
After the session, the attendees have the opportunity to network and mingle wit like-minded people while enjoying some free drinks provided by TUW i²c.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
