What People Are Saying
"LSI 2017 was instrumental to the conceptualization of VeRacity VRcade. Immediately after the conference, the work to establish the company began and within 5 months we opened the doors of VeRacity. Such events allow for human capital to be brought together and have the dialog needed to create new ideas, increase productivity, reduce costs and lead to overall greater prosperity for the region."
"The University of Rochester is delighted to partner with RIT and local and state economic development agencies in supporting the Light & Sound Initiative. LSI is a fantastic showcase for Rochester’s historic and emerging strengths in optics, imaging, and AI, as well as music creation and audio science. LSI celebrates the many exciting avenues for new ideas and new business opportunities that arise from Rochester’s unique environment – one where breakthrough science can spur economic growth and global leadership."
"We are at the forefront of developing some of the most exciting technologies and startups in one the world’s fastest-growing industries, and we are educating future world leaders who will continue to shape creativity and innovation for years to come. When our collective institutions collaborate, Rochester wins. But more than that, when communities come together and combine resources to help define a new industry, our country wins."
"Rochester has its eyes on the future where companies like Bausch + Lomb, Rochester Precision Optics and Optimax are leading the way with everything from advanced eye health care to providing NASA with high-precision optic.
