Light Tomorrow with Today

June 28th, 2018

On June 28th, 2018, the inaugural cohort of Luminate will participate in an exciting Demo Day event in the Big Tent of the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival! All 10 finalist companies will be pitching their optics, photonics, and imaging startups, and one team will be awarded $1 million in follow-on funding from the Empire State Development’s Finger Lakes Forward initiative. An additional $1 million is also available to be awarded to other finalist companies.

We hope you’ll join us for this exciting event! There will be food available for purchase from a variety of vendors, and you’ll get to hear about some truly incredible innovations in the optics, photonics, and imaging industry.

This event is free, but registration is required to reserve your seat!
