BioTN Scipreneur Challenge 2021

General interest meeting via Zoom on January 19th at 5:30pm – Zoom Info below.


After the cancellation of the 2020 edition of this event, we are excited to announce we will be having the Scipreneur Challenge in 2021!


In a “Shark Tank”-like competition setting, the Scipreneur Challenge (formerly the Tech Venture Challenge) from BioTN’s Academic Alliance offers university students and postdoctoral fellows hands-on experiences in commercialization of research and entrepreneurship. Participants in Scipreneur are assigned to 4- to 6- person teams and granted real-life intellectual property (IP) generated at area research institutions (from the Vanderbilt CTTC). The teams are tasked with designing a commercialization plan for the technology, including a business proforma (executive summary) and a 10-minute investor pitch. The participating teams, comprising of research scientists, engineers, business students, clinicians, and mentors will present a business plan and compete to win prizes in a final pitch competition, judged by the area business community and investors.  Winners receive prize money raised through program sponsorship. 


The final pitch will be held in late March but there is a general interest meeting via Zoom on January 19th at 5:30pm:
