The Bench-to-Business Boot Camp, hosted by Harvard's Office of Technology Development, is a two-day workshop on May 1 and 2 for Harvard PhD students and postdocs, designed to teach you the skills to recognize and convey the value of scientific and technological innovations to the world of industry, business, and entrepreneurship. The agenda consists of lectures, interactive exercises, and panel discussions. Topics include intellectual property, commercialization strategy, and much more.
The Boot Camp will be useful to researchers in any scientific field, including physical sciences, life sciences, biomedical sciences, engineering, and public health. Attending the Bench-to-Business Boot Camp will also prepare you well to apply to OTD’s highly competitive Business Development Fellowship next spring.
Seats are limited, and in order to participate, you'll need to apply first. Please submit your résumé and a cover letter explaining your interest in the Boot Camp to OTD by April 1, 2019. Please note: You must be able to commit to attending both full-day sessions.
