Event description

Description

Overview of the Event:

We are excited to be holding an event, hosted by the Entrepreneurial postdocs of Cambridge (EPOC) that will bring together researchers from different institutions and disciplines who are interested in entrepreneurship and want to find out more, with a stellar line-up of invited speakers including David Halpern and others.

It will be an interactive and informal session, that will highlight individual stories of 'entrepreneurial academics', and stimulate conversations around how researchers can build their own businesses, including associated challenges and opportunities.

Context for the Event:

Many university researchers are remarkably entrepreneurial, but the extent to which they would label themselves as such, or can move fluidly across sectors, varies greatly from one discipline to another. For decades, it has been common for researchers in the life sciences (e.g. in pharmacology) to move between academia and business. This is now becoming increasingly common for researchers in the computer sciences. But this is not the case for all disciplines. For many researchers in the social sciences, for example, the world of business and entrepreneurship is intimidating and unfamiliar. The objective of this event is to open a conversation about the world of entrepreneurship for researchers, and to foster collaboration and connection among a community of researchers and entrepreneurs.
