Berkeley Lab Gets Its Own Entrepreneur in Residence

Science can be a long, slow haul. The road to discovery is usually filled with endless experiments, much trial and error, reformulating of hypotheses, re-experimenting and, sometimes, a very lucky break. Contrast that with venture capitalism, generally a whirlwind of activity, marked with a rush to get a product to market, beat competitors and turn a profit. Can the two work together? An innovative new program at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is proving they can, very well.
