Emily Knight’s talking at TechCrunch Early Stage 2024
Turning a deep tech breakthrough into a tech startup — and then turning it into a commercial success — is a series of complex challenges. An accelerator or an incubator can help guide the way, but not every program can address the unique challenges these founders face when transitioning out of the lab and into the streets. How do you make the right choice?
We’re thrilled to announce that Emily Knight, president of the Engine Accelerator, will join us at TC Early Stage to discuss that very topic in a session called “Selecting the Right Accelerator or Incubator.”
You’d be hard pressed to find a more experienced person to weigh in on this topic. As the president of the Engine, Knight and her team work with entrepreneurs who merge science and engineering to solve some of the world’s toughest problems. The goal? Help them accelerate turning deep tech lab ideas into marketable products.
Choosing the right startup program can help young deep tech companies seamlessly navigate the unique hurdles they face along the way. This session will explain what you need to know today.
