Information Session: Entrepreneurship for Science and Medicine
Join this information session in person or by phone to learn more about the course and ask questions. Entrepreneurship for Science and Medicine 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.
