Jay Schrankler: University of Chicago

Jay Schrankler is the associate vice-president and head of the Polsky Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at University of Chicago, having spent the first part of his career in industry. He’s here to tell us about the transformative experience that convinced him to join the world of university tech transfer, what makes the Polsky Center such a unique organisation and why earlier this year it launched the US’s first ever accelerator focused exclusively on quantum technologies.

He also talks about his experience of chairing PraxisAuril, the importance of SETsquared for Exeter’s ecosystem and his views of the European ecosystem. This interview was recorded before Sean moved into his new job, which is still with Exeter: he has joined the senior executive to implement programmes linked to its 2030 strategy.
