Prof. Karl Leo from the Fraunhofer IPMS gives an talk about how to commercialize university technology. Karl Leo focuses on Organic Electronics and he already co-founded a few start-ups, including Novaled and Dresden microdisplay. The later part of the talk is devoted to OLED microdisplays - which Karl considers the most exciting thing he's ever done. Dresden Microdisplay is still looking for seed financing.

Karl also mentions a "killer lighting product" that needs financing, but he wouldn't disclose more info. During the talk, Karl says that OLED displays are already here - at least in smartphones. He believes that the next wave is OLED lighting, followed by organic solar cells and then finally organic electronics.

In January 2009 I interviewed Prof. Karl Leo here at OLED-Info.
