What’s the result when a global innovation powerhouse
and a leading university mash up?
Join us for an exclusive interactive event spotlighting cutting-edge technologies launched at the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute in New York City
The Jacobs Institute — established jointly by Cornell University and Technion – Israel Institute of Technology — fosters radical experimentation at the intersection of research, education, and entrepreneurship.
Learn from Jerry Kleinman, Executive Director of Principal Gifts at American Technion Society, about the innovative digital technologies and leaders emerging from the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute and its Runway Startup Postdoctoral Program.
Unlike traditional academic departments, the Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute is centered around three multidisciplinary, industry-based hubs designed to spur new technologies in Connective Media, Health Tech, and Urban Tech. These hubs are built on the notion that to really know how innovation works, you need to make things — new technologies, new companies, even mistakes.
The Jacobs Technion-Cornell Institute is also home to the Runway Startup Postdoc Program, providing a pathway for Ph.D.s to become CEOs. To date, Runway has launched 29 startups, 23 of which are currently operating, attracting more than $93 million in private investment companies.
