Entrepreneurship events week of September 6-10

Wednesday, September 8 (1:00 p.m. ET) – Scientist to CEO: Turning Life Science Innovations into Startup Success
Register for the virtual keynote.

Most of our modern life science innovations are born from the efforts of talented research scientists. The journey these innovations take to get into the hands of the public is quite complex. Meanwhile, the researchers behind the innovations also undergo a significant journey to adopt new skills and transition from biologist to businessperson. In this webcast, hosted by the SC Johnson College of Business’ BioEntrepreneurship Initiative and the Cornell Engineering, you’ll gain hard-earned advice from leading scientists who overcame industry challenges and who have collectively raised over $275M to launch and scale successful health tech startups.
