Doors open at 5:30 for networking, food, and drinks. Workshop begins at 6:00pm sharp!

Workshop #5: Ideation and Concept Screening

You've identified major medical needs, researched the causes and competition, and defined the needs of diverse stakeholders. Now is the moment you have all been waiting for – coming up with the solutions! Join us for the FINAL workshop in our Biodesign series where you and your team will brainstorm and select novel concepts to address some of society’s biggest healthcare crises. Top individuals and ideas may be eligible to participate in Enventure's accelerator program, Bioventures, in the spring. During this 10-week program teams will turn ideas into a business, which often continues to become a real startup!

Join us on Thursday, Oct 18 as we come to a close on 2018 Workshops. Whether you are new to Biodesign Workshops or have been attending the entire series, this workshop is for you!


Biodesign Workshops Description:

Biodesign workshops are designed to provide new entrepreneurs with an understanding of the innovation process, teaching them how to evaluate a life science technology as the basis for starting a new business. Learn how you can turn your creativity loose to design the future of healthcare. Whether you're an engineer, scientist, physician, or business expert, this class will bring you up to speed on the medical innovation process.

This series of workshops hosted by Enventure once a month will provide trainees with the opportunity to gain skills that you won't learn in the lab. We will be focusing on developing technologies that create value for patients, caregivers, and society using Stanford's Biodesign medical innovation process.

Attendance at each workshop is required for certificate, but the course is available to everyone for free.

Next steps:

People interested in continuing forward with entrepreneurship opportunities can engage with our ENRICH and Bioventures programs. Bioventures is kicking off with an info session on Thursday, November 8th. See more at enventure.org.

Bioventures Qualifications:
- Must be a student, resident or post-doc with exposure in the life science entrepreneurship space (e.g. Jack Gill's class, Enventure events)
- 10 - 20 hours p/ week
