Before a full-house of business developers, entrepreneurs, and educators, all 10 Southwestern University Centers presented their innovations, results, and best practices for economic development. The regional US Patent and Trademark Office also shared information about emerging commercialization, the incubation of businesses, and maker-space activities.
