Luminate is the only international startup accelerator focused solely on next-generation optics, photonics and imaging (OPI). Luminate brings visionary entrepreneurs from around the globe together with OPI pioneers and qualified investors to speed innovation and time to market. It’s also providing early-stage companies with the capital necessary to further develop their technologies. FiO + LS is honored to host the 2020 virtual presentation of the annual Pitch Competition, as 10 start-ups compete for opportunities to win up to US$ 2 million in follow-on funding. [More information.]

 

Part Two: Post-Event Breakout: Applying to the Luminate Accelerator

12:00 - 12:30

Solving problems in biophotonics, augmented and virtual reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, and other related fields requires specific skills — and so does starting a business. Luminate helps you do both by providing comprehensive support, including:

  • A significant investment at acceptance, plus a chance to compete for up to $2 million in follow-on funding 
  • Access to investors, mentors, and the global OPI ecosystem for additional capital and support
  • A peer-learning environment and robust curriculum to help you scale your business 

Join this session to learn about the process of applying to Luminate and to get your questions answered.  This session is perfect for:

  • Entrepreneurs who have an OPI startup at the early-stage to Series A funding phase
  • Scientists and engineers who are looking to move their technology from the lab to the market
  • Teams that need resources for the design, fabrication, and manufacturing of technologies.

OSA Advancing Mid-Managers Summit- It’s Not You, It’s Your Brain: Practical Neuroscience for Leadership

Monday, 14 September, 15:00 – 17:30

Pre-registration required

 

Ever wonder how what goes on inside our brains affects how we interact within our organizations? Oftentimes, leadership tactics that have worked to engage or motivate others simply fall flat with your colleagues or employees. Rest assured – it’s not you, it’s your brain! Participants in this session will explore the world of the brain and dissect some of the top neuroscience research and models to create practical applications on how to engage, motivate and develop others. You will experience the ways in which the brain drives people toward – or away from – certain situations which, in turn, affects how they process information, learn, lead and engage with others. Through interactive exercises, you will leave this session with:

  • The building blocks of neuroscience and neuroleadership
  • Ways to apply the models to your specific leadership or leadership development situation

This session is designed for participants with at least 6+ years of professional experience and not for students. Space is limited.

Navigating the Virtual Job Market

Tuesday, 15 September, 11:00 – 12:00

The in-pandemic and post-pandemic job market has increased demands on job candidates in terms of their performance during virtual interviews. The virtual interview is the first "real" interview step whereby an average of only 6-12 out of every 525 job candidates who submit a resume receive a request for a phone screen, and only 3-5 who are screened move forward to a video interview.

How quickly and how correctly you respond to a virtual interview request can determine whether or not the interview will go well. Likewise, the questions you ask at the end of these interviews and the very last sentence you say can determine whether or not you will move forward to get a job offer. Thus, from beginning to end, your contact with an employer about a video interview is a crucial process that all technical job candidates must understand. Moreover, the technical candidate must understand how to speak with the interviewer, who most often is a non-technical hiring manager and front-line gatekeeper tasked with screening out technical candidates who come across as "arrogant, awkward, or defensive", or who come across as a "student" or a "people pleaser".

Data from interviews with hundreds of technology, engineering, optical and biotechnology employers will be discussed, including which 10 questions are most commonly asked during virtual interviews.

*This event is open to students and early career professionals only (member or non-member)*
