Technology Entrepreneurship Seminar Series
Are you interested in technology commercialization and entrepreneurship? On behalf of the Chair of Free Enterprise, we would like to invite you to attend or register for our weekly technology entrepreneurship seminar series: Product Realization and Technology Commercialization (ME 397K and BME 386).
This is a 3 hr CR/NC graduate level seminar hosted in conjunction with the Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), the Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC), and the Idea to Product ® program (I2P®). It is open to the UT community and will be held on Fridays from 3 - 4 pm in the Engineering Teaching Center, ETC 2.136. The seminar will cover topics essential to technology commercialization and entrepreneurship, such as ‘Market validation and customer needs’, ‘Risk, return and product design’, ‘Legal and IP issues’, ‘Technology transfer and commercialization at UT’, ‘Understanding funding sources’, ‘Entrepreneurs as innovators’, ‘New venture creation and business plans’, ‘Market launch’, and ‘the Global Idea to Product Competition’. A complete schedule of topics is attached to this email.
Furthermore, we will be hosting Technology Commercialization Office Hours on the first Fridays of the month: 9/4, 10/2, and 11/6 immediately following the seminar. If you have an idea and are interested in learning how to commercialize your idea or start a company, now is your chance to ask your questions and brainstorm ideas with ATI, OTC, and I2P.
We’re excited about our line-up of topics and speakers and expect to have a great audience of students and community members with a desire to learn about commercialization and entrepreneurships from seasoned professionals. We hope you will be able to join us at the seminar and the office hours.
