Tech parade

-A A +A
By Roger Snodgrass

Albuquerque – Los Alamos National Laboratory gets some special attention each year at Technology Ventures Corporation’s Equity Capital Symposium. The LANL Tech Showcase is the first event on the schedule, followed by the investor reception in the adjoining room and then the Wine and Food Flight Extravaganza, where buyers and sellers begin to bond.

During this year’s showcase, LANL officials used the occasion to kick off a new tool in their tech transfer kit, the Los Alamos Venture Acceleration (LAVA) Initiative.

According to Business Week magazine, New Mexico is becoming “a technological hotspot,” with venture capital investments surging 167 percent last year compared to the national average of 5 percent.

The magazine attributes the growth to the presence of LANL and Sandia National Laboratories.

But investors should not worry about missing out: The train has not yet left the station, according to many participants at the conference. There’s still plenty of upside.

Hot new and still available technologies at the laboratory, as outlined by B. Russell Hopper of the lab’s Technology Transfer Division, include deposition technologies, biological technologies, sensors and software.
