Entrepreneurship for Science and Medicine: Application Deadline
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 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 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.
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.

The course will be held October 18, 25; and November 1, 8, and 15 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. in room C-07 at the Charles M. Harper Center at Chicago Booth.
