“Entrepreneurship is the pursuit of opportunity without regard to resources currently controlled” – Howard Stevenson, Harvard Business School
Each year new innovations in bioscience are brought to market by researchers and clinicians who have embraced their entrepreneurial spirit and entered the bio-entrepreneurship world. Regardless of the idea, becoming an entrepreneur takes a specific mindset, set of skills and expertise to find the right path to success while negotiating the moves required to establishing a company. Starting a new venture requires expertise and guidance to provide the best chance for success for the new entrepreneur.
To support members of the MDACC and UT communities, CPD&E engages with emerging entrepreneurs looking to learn about and evaluate options for their idea, research, or technology. This engagement consists of four key areas, including;
- Curriculum – Creating awareness through courses designed to fill in “gaps” of knowledge about all facets of being an entrepreneur.
- Advising – Providing experienced and informed evaluation, facilitation, and guidance through the entrepreneurial process.
- Programs – Establishing entrepreneurial skill development opportunities through internal and external resources.
- Resources – Facilitating opportunities for emerging entrepreneurs to gain exposure to organizations and companies that support early stage start-ups and bio-entrepreneurship.
