This is an introductory course in entrepreneurship for science and medicine offered to graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, researchers, and faculty who are working at the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, and FermiLab. The course provides an introduction to the field of entrepreneurship, not only familiarizing participants with common topics and frameworks, but also introducing them to real-life entrepreneurs and investors. Given its audience, the course will have a special focus on entrepreneurship in scientific fields and how scientists can play a role in the commercialization of research and inventions from the lab. The goal of the course is to provide a greater understanding around what it takes to bring a research discovery or idea to market for a larger societal impact.
