Event Details

Program

University of Minnesota researchers are invited to a free start-up seminar hosted by the Office for Technology Commercialization (OTC). 

This program will explore several principles, tools and practices to supplement your technical expertise and help you anticipate and navigate the challenges along the path from discovery and IP to commercial success. We'll explore the “three C’s” of innovation: the broader context (the innovation ecosystem), the capability required for a commercially viable solution (the business model), and the collaboration practices necessary to execute the business model successfully.

If you have ever thought about setting up or getting involved in a new company but haven't yet had much commercial experience, the information at this session will be valuable.
