Nanotechnology Venture Forum – Jan. 20

by | Jan 13, 2006 | Week in Geek

What is nanotechnology and why is it so important?
As technology continues to evolve, processes become more efficient. Nanotechnology comprises technological developments on the nanometer scale, usually 0.1 to 100 nm. (One nanometer equals one thousandth of a micrometer or one millionth of a millimeter.) The term has sometimes been applied to microscopic technology.
To learn more about nanotechnology and emerging nanotechnology companies, you should attend the 5th Annual Nanotechnology Venture Forum on Jan. 20 in Houston. At the Forum, six early-stage companies will present their technologies to investors, industry leaders mentors and service providers.
Supported by the Houston Technology Center, the Forum is co-hosted by the Rice Alliance for Technology & Entrepreneurship, the Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology and the Rice Center for Biological and Environmental Nanotechnology.
