Ignite Fredericton will host an Engage Talk Nov 30 at Planet Hatch to highlight how the commercialization of research and business startups can drive disruptive social impact.

Rosemarie Truman, CEO of the Bethesda, Maryland-based Center for Advancing Innovation, will present the keynote. In it, she will share her organization's approach to fostering the development of startups that commercialize government and university patents through a challenge-based accelerator.

She will also present and invite people to take part in the Freedom from Cancer Startup Challenge, which aims to help startups that make inventions for cancer treatment get to market.
