Greetings labmembers --

Due to popular demand, Shahin Farschi, from Lux Capital, will be back to meet with labmembers and other researchers interested in learning about the VC process.  As requested following his previous visit, Shahin will present a short review some examples of VC financing:  "Ever-increasing market competition and narrow market windows further exacerbate the challenge of commercializing a novel technology. This seminar will introduce the audience to who VCs are, how they evaluate investment opportunities, and what innovators can expect from the process, which will be followed by an example and Q&A session."

Background: Shahin Farshchi is an associate at Lux Capital, a venture capital firm that invests in early-stage semiconductor, energy, materials, and biotechnology companies, where he assists in the creation and evaluation of semiconductor and cleantech-related companies for investment.  Shahin earned his B.S. degree in EECS from the University of California at Berkeley, followed by his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering with a focus on MEMS and analog IC design from the University of California at Los Angeles.
