AURP Peer2Peer

AURP Peer2Peer Network groups help professionals in the university-based incubator and tech park industry share challenges and lessons learned in a friendly, informal environment. Peer2Peer groups meet monthly and provide an opportunity for individuals in similar roles and functions to exchange recommendations, best-practices and ideas to utilize AURP’s best resource: its own members. Championed by both the Board and Advisory Council members for its flexibility, each Peer2Peer group is able to determine the format that best suits the members of the group, including possible guest speakers, special topics and roundtables. Whether you lead a research park, manage a facility, are the community manager at an incubator or lead the business development for a park, we know you will find a peer group that works for you.

Peer 2 Peer Network group calls are open to all AURP members, including their research park and university colleagues.

Here's what your colleagues are saying about the AURP Peer2Peer Network groups:

“I’ve really enjoyed working with colleagues across the country in such a close and casual manner.  It’s good to remember we are facing many of the same challenges and opportunities and to be able to discuss overarching vision along with implementation strategies and tactics is invaluable.” - Allison Madden, MBA, Corporate Secretary and Director of Operations
University of South Florida Research Foundation, Inc.

"Park management is very specialized.  It often feels like we are on an island.  I'm really looking forward to the P2P groups providing us with a venue to leverage the experience and expertise of others on similar islands!" - Joe W. Meredith, PhD, President, Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center, Inc.
