WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Select investors who provide capital for startup
businesses will benefit from a program that provides a first look at companies commercializing technologies
developed at Purdue University.

The Purdue Research Foundation has established the P3 Alliance - "Purdue, People, Performance" - as an angel
investment network that provides investment information and connects individuals to firms or new technologies in
which they may choose to invest. Prospective members are invited to apply online.

Members of the P3 Alliance will receive an online subscription to http://www.p3-alliance.com, the network's Web
site. They also will receive invitations to three or four annual events featuring company presentations, access to
documentation from firms seeking angel-level investments, and the ability to interact online with network participants
and management.

"The P3 Alliance will provide the necessary capital to commercialize innovative products and processes that are
discovered in Purdue laboratories," said Joseph B. Hornett, senior vice president, treasurer and COO of the Purdue
Research Foundation. "Purdue researchers will be able to deliver their discoveries to the marketplace on a much
faster schedule, which means the public will benefit earlier and the economy will benefit through increased economic
development."

Membership fees for the P3 Alliance are $500 annually, which defray the cost of operating the network and hosting
investor meetings and company presentations. After a prospective member's online application has been reviewed
and accepted, members will be notified by e-mail and invoiced for their membership dues. For more information,
visit the P3 Alliance at http://www.p3-alliance.com
