Hear about their extraordinary innovations from agriculture, human resources, the natural health (especially pharmacy), and environmental and social sciences. In recent years, FAMU has produced a significant number of patents, trademarks, trade secrets and copyrights. FAMU is convinced that these novel developments by faculty, staff and students all will contribute significantly to the health and well-being of this country by stimulating start-up businesses that generate new jobs. K. Ken Redda, Ph.D., Professor and Vice President for Research noted: “Licensing and commercialization of FAMU’s intellectual property is a top priority. Our goal is to bring FAMU inventions to the marketplace by promoting the diverse innovations of FAMU faculty, staff and student inventors. The entire business community is welcome to be a part of this important FAMU ISHOW.”
In 2012, President Barack Obama proclaimed November of each year as National Entrepreneurship Month celebrating innovation and commercialization. Linked to business start-ups by entrepreneurs, the growth of the U.S. economy continues to be responsible for most of the new jobs created in this country. Come to the iSHOW to find out more of our inventions in celebration of National Entrepreneurship Month; get a glimpse of how FAMU is “Innovating Today for a better tomorrow!” For more information on this celebration, please contact Ms. Sharon Snelling at Sharon.firstname.lastname@example.org or call: (850) 412-7232.
