STRIDE is a registered not for profit company with a mission to retain the scientists who lost their jobs in the Delaware Valley and rebuild the science community and enable them to do what they know best to do i.e. scientific work. Since its inception in May 2016, STRIDE has been working on funds to provide a laboratory facility and associated organizational structure that will enable its members (i) to undertake contract and collaborative research and consulting work to earn some income in the short term (ii) to start their own businesses in the laboratory and (iii) to organize education outreach to grow the number of STEM students in colleges and schools thereby contributing to the region’s economic development. The presentation will present some highlights on progress to date and opportunities to partner with other organizations in the region who share STRIDE’s mission.
