Application Deadline: Entrepreneurship for Science and Medicine

This is an introductory course in entrepreneurship for science and medicine offered to graduate students, post-doctoral scholars, and faculty who are working in scientific research or study at the University of Chicago. This non-credit course will provide 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 their research and inventions. 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.

Individuals interested in an introduction to entrepreneurship are encouraged to apply; neither a team nor an idea is necessary for acceptance. This course can serve as a precursor to or a continuation of the Polsky Center I-Corps Program. Attendance at all sessions is mandatory, and there is no cost to take the course. Space is limited – apply early. >>

Course dates: Wednesdays, October 17 through November 14.
