The format mirrors a speed-dating event--technology managers make a two minute pitch to a table of investors, and when a buzzer rings, they move to the next table. The goal is to rapidly present as many new technologies to as many investors as possible.

WHEN: May 7, 2013 • 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

WHERE: Zions Bank • One South Main, 18th Floor • Salt Lake City

event highlights

'Speed Teching'
The format will be just like speed dating – university representatives will get two minutes to pitch a technology to a table of investors. When the buzzer rings, they must move to the next table. Investors will have the opportunity to spend more time with the technology managers after the speed teching is complete.
Value Express Licensing
The U is now offering "value express license agreements." Select University of Utah patents and patent applications will be available under a simplified, non-exclusive agreement with no upfront fees. This express license can be executed on the spot.
Technologies on Display
Some of the technologies that will be pitched include:

Prize drawings will be held for one ActiveDesk, two pairs of AxonOptics sunglasses, one Cool Handle Dutch Oven, one dozen golf balls and 4 cases of XOJO protein drink.

ActiveDesk: Exercise Work Desk
Active Desk is an integrated recumbent exercise bike and desk with refined ergonomics for easy computer operation. Active Desk facilitates physical activity throughout the workday and thus improves physical and psychological health. The key to Active Desk is that you can be active all day long and keep the intensity low - no sweating, no heavy breathing, and no muscle burning.
AxonOptics: Eyewear for Migraine and Light Sensitivity
Light is often what triggers both eye pain and migraines. Moreover, migraine sufferers frequently complain of light sensitivity during their attacks. Axon Optics offers lenses that block the light implicated in triggering and exacerbating migraines by utilizing precisely-tuned tints. More than 80% of patients using AxonOptics eyewear report that the tint improves symptoms of photophobia (light sensitivity) and headache.
Cool Handle Dutch Oven: A New Design for an Old Standard
The Cool Handle Dutch Oven is designed to eliminate the problems of the hot and unstable wire handle of traditional Dutch ovens. The slide-in handle and locking lid combine to make cooking with this unique Dutch oven a simple pleasure. Gone are the days of burning your hand on the wire handle or the need for a heavy glove. And the Dutch oven is stable and the contents will not spill as with the old style ovens.
One Dozen Golf Balls
The TCO will be giving away one dozen golf balls.
4 Cases of XOJO Protein Drink
XOJO is the first NCAA permissible, in-game protein drink. XOJO is a protein punch during exercise to give you a strong competitive advantage. If your muscles are stressed, in-game protein assists in greater muscle recovery and improves aerobic endurance. While your competitors are trying to balance a series of drinks, you have the convenience of 3 drinks in 1 with even more benefits..
