Start your Journey from Education to Enterprise
As New York’s land-grant college, Cornell has long been expected to turn research into useful products and processes. This was true in 1865 and is still true today. The path from having a strong desire to learn more about entrepreneurship to successfully commercializing a technology or idea is not always clear or direct. Whether you are an undergraduate, a graduate student or a Cornell faculty member, we can help guide you on your entrepreneurial journey. There is not just one correct path to commercializing an idea. And no particular path can guarantee success. But there are things you can learn and do to increase your chances of creating a successful startup. Looking for classes you can take? Technical advice on building a prototype? Financial backing to assemble a team and start production? Not sure where to begin? Start your journey here. You’ll find the resources you need no matter where you are on the path.
“I joined the Commercialization Fellowship because I wanted to get more exposure to thinking entrepreneurially about highly technical problems.”
2016 Fellow Bill Bedell
Ph.D. Candidate, Robert Frederick Smith School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering
