Virtual: BioTN Scipreneur Challenge 2021 General Interest Meeting
January 19 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
After the cancellation of the 2020 edition of this event, we are excited to announce we will be having the Scipreneur Challenge in 2021!
In a “Shark Tank”-like competition setting, the Scipreneur Challenge (formerly the Tech Venture Challenge) from BioTN’s Academic Alliance offers university students and postdoctoral fellows hands-on experiences in commercialization of research and entrepreneurship. Participants in Scipreneur are assigned to 4- to 6- person teams and granted real-life intellectual property (IP) generated at area research institutions (from the Vanderbilt CTTC).
The teams are tasked with designing a commercialization plan for the technology, including a business proforma (executive summary) and a 10-minute investor pitch. The participating teams, comprising of research scientists, engineers, business students, clinicians, and mentors will present a business plan and compete to win prizes in a final pitch competition, judged by the area business community and investors.
- Work in cross-disciplinary teams with an industry mentor
- Develop mock commercialization plans
- Pitch those plans for cash prizes to a panel of local industry experts
Winners receive prize money raised through program sponsorship. The final pitch will be held in late March.
