This summer, the BRET Office of Career Development is offering a module for PhD students and postdocs in the biomedical sciences, chemistry, and biomedical engineering who are interested in entrepreneurship and commercialization of scientific innovations.
The 2016 Summer Intensive for Entrepreneurship and Commercialization will run Mondays and Thursdays from June 6-July 28 (with a break the week of July 4). Course participants will break into teams and develop a technology commercialization proposal and investment pitch. The course is ideal for trainees who want an introduction to the "language" of business, and trainees who are interested in entrepreneurship or academic innovation, or a career in start-ups, technology transfer, business, or consulting.
A course syllabus and application information is available on the module website. This course is limited to 20 participants, and PhD students must be post-qualifying exam by the time the module begins. Applications are required and due by Monday, May 2. See the course website for more information.
