Rutgers University is hosting a free conference for entrepreneurs Oct. 16 to connect startups with investors, government agencies and other emerging businesses.

The annual event, which will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the university's New Brunswick campus, will also include a keynote address from Donald Black, president of Trialynx and a former senior executive at Merck. Black will discuss his work managing clinical trials for Lipitor, the world's best-selling prescription drug — a story that will resonate with entrepreneurs, said Richard Mammone, a Rutgers business and engineering professor and the founder of Entrepreneurship Day.

"Dr. Black will share with us his experience in drug development, with the associated challenges and pitfalls faced by people in the industry, which are relevant to many business initiatives," Mammone said in a statement.

The event is geared toward university researchers hoping to commercialize their technologies, entrepreneurs hoping to learn more about funding and to network with service providers, venture capitalists, angel investors and early-stage startups.

The conference is free, but online registration is required. To register, visit http://innovate.rutgers.edu/content/home.
