Day 1 - Tech Showcase, Opening Speaker and Kick-Off Party

Day one was a success and a great opening to the week!

The event was held in the Kirby Winter Gardens at Fuqua, and attracted a crowd of VCs, independent investors, inventors, lawyers, entrepreneurs, students, and faculty.

After the Tech Showcase, Aerie Pharmaceuticals presented in Faculty Hall. Aerie is a biotechnology company developing new therapies for sight-threatening diseases of the eye and is based on innovations from the labs of David Epstein, MD, Chairman of the Department of Ophthalmology, and Eric Toone, PhD, Professor of Chemistry.

At 6:30, Howie Rhee opened the kick-off party and shared the stage and mic with Chris Lynch from Wyrick Robbins Yates & Ponton LLP, the headline sponsor for the week, and eWeek co-chairs Larry Boyd, Jeff Clark, and Jeremy Welch. Jeff spoke briefly about Duke University's entrepreneurial roots and the bright future ahead. Chris Lynch followed with a few words about his firm and their history of support for entrepreneurs from Duke.
