Silicon Innovation Forum

Silicon Innovation Forum  - New solutions, New partnerships and New resources.

A Showcase of Startups, Investors and Research Innovators. The Silicon Innovation Forum is a one and a half day program that highlights the innovators of tomorrow including exciting new startup companies, investors and breakthrough research groups.

Day one (startup day) attendees will hear from startup CEO, a luminary keynote, strategic investors, and incentive programs available such as the National Science Foundation (NSF) SBIR program.

Day two (research day) is equally exciting where leading research innovators from top universities, research labs and federal technology agencies from around the world will present advanced research activities, strategic partnering options, intellectual property solutions and technology standards.

Visit the startups and research groups presenting at the Silicon Innovation Forum at the Innovation Village exposition.  Segments include the Startup Showcase and Research Park.

Innovation Village attendees will gain key insights into new technologies and products, advanced research solutions, investment opportunities, as well as technology transfer and partnerships opportunities. Meet exciting startup companies and top research institutions/organizations. Here are a few of the topics covered this year at our upcoming SIF startup showcase:

  • OLED TECHNOLOGY UNLEASHED: Let the  flexible product revolution BEGIN!

  • “Semiconductors of Light”: The Next Generation

  • A Chemical Sensor on a Chip for IoT

  • High-Throughput, Parallel Atomic Force Microscopy

  • Thin Crystalline Technology

  • Direct transfer printing tools for flexible hybrid electronics assembly

 All right here in the Innovation Village.

The Innovation Village is strategically co-located next to the Silicon Innovation Forum, a two-segment startup and research-focused conference. 

Hear presentations from start up companies seeking investment capital.  Examples of exciting new technologies presented at last year’s event:

  • Silicon thermo-electronic technology enabling wearable devices to operate using energy from body heat

  • Low cost, 3D printing technology for mass production

  • CMP slurries with nano-sized contact release capsules to enable planarization of high aspect ratio structures

  • Power management IC technology with reduced footprint and thickness

  • Sensors on Silicon Germanium capable of detecting a broader range of the IR spectrum

  • Radically new, biomedical applications for semiconductor technology
