Innovation Bioscience Initiative:
Innovation Bioscience is a training and incubation initiative focused on bridging the gap between biomedical research and healthcare need. Life science professionals across the spectrum drive innovation and are well positioned to be domain-expert entrepreneurs filling a much-needed gap in translation and commercialization. Entrepreneurship can be an attractive career track for some, but many lack the background and experience necessary to engage with new venture creation opportunities. Additionally, many equate “entrepreneurship” with exclusively starting new companies, and while this can often be the case, entrepreneurial skills and experience can have far reaching and rewarding applications particularly toward leveraging existing intellectual property (IP).
Our intensive 6-week “Introduction to Life Science Commercialization” takes participants working in teams through the entire product development and commercialization process. Program participants will apply key concepts toward ideating, building, and pitching novel start-up proposals to a panel of experts in the space. Additionally, course participants will build transferable skills in areas ranging from communication, leadership, team building, problem framing, and the process of testing and validating potential market-ready business opportunities. Lastly, participants will gain exposure to the vibrant start-up ecosystem of the Greater Boston area (and beyond) through guest speakers, panelists, and project mentors.
