Nanotechnology makes big splash at nanotech commercialization conference

The American Tobacco Campus was the site of this year’s Nanotech Commercialization Conference. Bay 7, a former tobacco warehouse, hosted most of the conference events. Stephen Waite, managing partner of SoundView Advisory, noted that 30 to 40 years ago, the warehouse was a busy place for rolling tobacco. “Now we’re sitting here talking about rolling carbon nanotubes,” he said.
